Date RFP Issued: May 8, 2017
Clinical Area: Psoriatic Arthritis
Link to full RFP: Shared Management of Psoriatic Arthritis
LOI Due Date: June 23, 2017
Specific Area of Interest: Evidence indicates that many patients with Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA) remain undiagnosed, and those who have been diagnosed are not receiving optimal care. It is our intent to support projects that focus on the coordinated management and identification of patients with psoriatic arthritis (PsA) by both rheumatology and dermatology healthcare professionals.
Patients with Psoriatic Arthritis experience symptoms that involve both the skin and the joints, impacting their quality of life. Given the nature of the disease, patients may seek care from both dermatologists and rheumatologists, as the disease progresses through periods of flare and remission. A collaborative approach to treatment by a combined team of rheumatology and dermatology clinicians allows for a unique blend of expertise and provides the opportunity for comprehensive care for the PsA patient.
It is expected that projects will be evidence-based and the proposed evaluation will follow generally accepted scientific principles. During review the intended outcome of the project is given careful consideration and, if appropriate based on the project goal, projects with the maximum likelihood to directly impact patient care will be given high priority.
