CAPES (Clinician and Patient Education Series) is a collaboration of GRAPPA (Group for Research and Assessment of Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis), NPF (National Psoriasis Foundation), SAA (Spondylitis Association of America), and SPARTAN (Spondyloarthritis Research and Treatment Network). Our goals are to provide up-to-date knowledge, to advance HCP’s competence and performance in managing adult and pediatric patients with psoriatic arthritis (PsA) and axial spondyloarthritis (axSpA), and to create learning opportunities for patients and their families. We’ve developed learning modules with customized webinars and podcasts for both clinicians and patients and their families. Programming is available below for clinicians.
