Outside In

What is Outside In?

Outside In is a series of educational initiatives that aim to improve the awareness, diagnosis and management of patients with psoriatic arthritis (PsA).


The Outside In programme consists of three fundamental pillars:





  • PsA Assessment Academy
    Educational tools developed by the Academy to raise awareness on the tests used to diagnose and standardise the assessment of the disease.


  • Collaborative Care
    Materials designed to Evaluate and improve collaborative working between rheumatology and dermatology units to ensure patients get the best possible care



What does PsA Online aim to achieve?
PsA Online for Healthcare Professionals has been developed as an online resource containing all the information and tools developed by the Assessment Academy.

This website aims to provide an easy-to-use platform for healthcare professionals to access the available assessment and training tools in PsA, as recommended by leading experts.

Who has accredited this site?
PsA Online has been developed in partnership with the Psoriasis Association to ensure the best possible care for patients.
