The programme aims to equip dermatology specialists with new skills to empower their patients to live better with psoriasis.
We, the Psoriasis Association, are
funding Professor Chris Bundy and her team at Cardiff University to roll out the
PsoWell (psoriasis and wellbeing) training programme. This novel
programme involves a one-day training event that aims to equip dermatology
specialists with knowledge and motivational interviewing skills to empower
patients with complex psoriasis to manage their condition effectively through
lifestyle behaviour change. Participants who complete the training will receive
a certificate of approval as a PsoWell service.
Professor Chris Bundy (Cardiff
University) and Dr Elise Kleyn (University of Manchester) will deliver up to
ten training events across the UK between July and November 2019. Details of
the training dates and locations will be announced very soon.
As this is an opportunity to establish a novel
clinical approach to be integrated with existing services, we are welcoming
applications to attend a training event. The Psoriasis Association will sponsor
FREE places to members of a dermatology team to attend a training day. If you
