A new educational project in psoriasis is pleased to announce a unique and interactive educational programme launching with a new symposium, focusing on long-term disease control in psoriasis, and taking place at one of 2019’s leading European dermatology congresses.

Featuring an expert faculty, who will consider the use of biologics in moderate to severe psoriasis, the educational symposium will take place at the 28th European Academy of Dermatology and Venerology (EADV) Congress in Madrid on 10 October 2019. Commenting on the project, Commercial Director Jonathan McDonald said:

This is a really exciting project which will provide a novel learning for practicing dermatologists, but also family medicine doctors. We're delighted to be running a symposium with Almirall S.A and looking forward to sharing the highlights from the symposium exclusively on

The highlights from the symposium will be exclusively available on as part of the Psoriasis Academy, which is due to launch in parallel with EADV.

Addressing the unmet needs in moderate to severe psoriasis, the Psoriasis Academy will draw on the experience of practicing dermatologists, GPs and allied healthcare professionals.

The Psoriasis Academy will serve as a central repository for those specialists who are already aware of the current market but want to remain up to date on the latest treatment research and development. As well as providing an easily accessible source of information, the Psoriasis Academy will provide a platform for HCPs to share their clinical experience.

 It will feature recorded highlights from the EADV symposium, along with case studies and interviews with leading experts.

The faculty, including Professor Diamant Thaçi, Professor Luis Puig, and Professor Stefano Piaserico, will consider the case studies in a wider disease awareness context. Placed within a firm scientific background, the final learning resource will be a unique portfolio of go-to examples for quick reference.

If you are not attending - don't worry! will be hosting the recorded highlights post-event.

About the project

Delivered through an arms-length educational grant with Almirall S.A, this project will see the development of a series of independent learning resources, delivered across multiple channels to influence unmet needs in moderate to severe psoriasis. Published to, the website for healthcare professionals, it aims to bring together healthcare professionals from around the world.
