Psoriasis

14th November 2012 by Louise Hudman

This guideline gives a step by step guide to what different treatments to try. It also gives a good guide to what we should be asking about in history taking to judge the impact and severity of the disease. The management is a bit difficult to explain in words, so I’ve done a flow-chart, which hopefully will make it a bit easier to follow. Remember that Portsmouth has its own guidance on management of psoriasis on the PIP.

Judging the Severity of Psoriasis:

You can do a ‘Physician’s Global Assessment’ and ask the patient to do a ‘Patient’s Global Assessment’.  This involves grading the psoriasis as clear, nearly clear, mild, moderate, severe or very severe and allows changes to be monitored.

"LocumDeck does everything you want it to do in an instant and with audit trails.

I absolutely love the facility for receiving Locum's invoices and the facility for signing the Pension Forms electronically and they are then instantly sent with an audit trail! It is fabulous!

You are notified the moment a Locum GP adds availability which is just fantastic, I spend a lot of time just chasing agencies to see if they have availability, so to be notified the moment availability is advertised is a new concept and very welcome! I have no hesitation in recommending LocumDeck - it has already eased my workload!"
