Project timeline 2017-2010

Aim 1. Identify TPE and self-management methods used in practice by ‘experts’ in the field of psoriasis: who are the “experts” and how do they perform TPE in detail?

Aim 2. Identify the barriers that keep healthcare providers from using TPE: why is TPE underused?

Aim 3. Identify the patient’s needs: what are the most urgent needs amongst patients that TPE can address?

Aim 4. Systematic review of self-management and TPE interventions for chronic skinconditions: which educational interventions are effective (evidence-based) and address which patient needs?

Aim 5. Adapt and refine definition of TPE for Psoriasis: is the concept of TPE clear to everyone?

Aim 6. Developing the toolbox: can we offer the most effective educational interventions in a toolbox to healthcare providers?

Aim 7. Rollout period for toolbox: how do we offer this toolbox to healthcare providers? 

Our findings will be published in peer reviewed journals and presented at public health conferences.

Publication 1: Systematic review
Publication 2: Roundtable discussion
Publication 3: TPE refined for Psoriasis: a modified Delphi process
