Systemic Treatments in Localised High Impact Psoriasis

This case study follows the 5-step process for accessing and using evidence in response to a request from the Joint Formulary Group (JFG) in the Bristol, North Somerset, and South Gloucestershire Integrated Care System (BNSSG ICS). A search was conducted to find evidence on the use of certain systemic treatments, namely biologic medications and apremilast, a small molecule drug, in the management of severe psoriasis at localised, high impact sites.

The Evaluation and Evidence toolkits go hand in hand. Using and generating evidence to inform decision making is vital to improving services and people’s lives.
