Recommendation details

Recommendation ID: CG153/4
Question: Self-management:- Do structured psoriasis-focused self-management programmes improve patient confidence, wellbeing and disease control compared with standard care?
Page: 36
Any explanatory
notes (if applicable):
Why this is important:- Virtually all patients self-manage their condition to a greater or lesser extent and this involves complex topical applications as well as systemic therapies to be used over many years in response to fluctuating disease severity. The evidence indicates that in contrast to many chronic disorders, there are no validated programmes to help patients achieve effective self - management. Establishing a focused programme that effectively improves outcomes for patients would be of clinical benefit and likely deliver healthcare savings.
