Abstract

For the first time, 8 patients with psoriatic arthritis (PsA) participated as full delegates at the 2013 Annual Meeting of the Group for Research and Assessment of Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis (GRAPPA). Patients were invited to provide their perspective for different sessions of the conference program. Before the conference, the patient delegates had a separate meeting to familiarize themselves with the conference program and to gain a better understanding of the vision and objectives of GRAPPA. During the conference, the patient group discussed options for increased involvement in research projects. Herein we summarize the presentations on patient participation in research, the experiences of the patient group, and plans to enhance the patient perspective in psoriasis and PsA research.
