Workshop to focus on 10 unique psoriasis patient encounters

The workshop “Improve Psoriasis Comorbidity Screening while Earning MOC PI Credit” (W007) will be returning to the 74th Annual Meeting on Sunday, March 6, from 1 to 3 p.m. This session will allow participants to identify notes from 10 recent unique psoriasis patient encounters and bring de-identified copies to the session for abstraction.

Participants may complete the abstraction in advance to avoid transporting de-identified records to the session. Time will be allotted to complete data abstraction of these patient encounters with faculty assistance. A brief didactic presentation on the quality improvement process (Part IV MOC requirements) will follow, as well as information regarding the appropriate history-taking of lifestyle behaviors of patients with psoriasis. Faculty will then assist participants with personalized guidance on strategies for implementation of the improvement plan.

Upon returning to practice, participants will implement the improvement plan, wait an appropriate amount of time so that an additional 10 patients with psoriasis are seen in the practice, abstract a second set of 10 patient encounters, and then reflect on the results. All necessary forms will be provided upon registration.

After the course, attendees should be able to:

  • Increase the rate of documenting smoking and alcohol histories in patients with psoriasis.
  • Increase the rate of calculating body mass index measurement in psoriasis patients.
  • Increase the rate of documenting offered interventions for psoriasis patients who are smokers, who drink alcohol in excess, or who are obese.

This workshop will offer participants 2 CME credits hours; tuition fee and ticket will be required for admission.
