CAPES: A Unique Spondyloarthritis Educational Series for Patients and Physicians
SAA has partnered with SPARTAN, GRAPPA, and NPF to develop and present a series of webinars and podcasts for clinicians and patients, to provide in-depth education on spondyloarthritis (SpA), including psoriatic arthritis (PsA). As a collective group of nonprofit organizations committed to improving research and understanding of our respective diseases, we’re excited to bring you this unique, collaborative project!
We focused our programs on four main topics: Juvenile Spondyloarthritis and Juvenile Psoriatic Arthritis, Understanding and Managing Pain and Fatigue in Spondyloarthritis and Psoriatic Arthritis, Spondyloarthritis and Psoriatic Arthritis Treatment Update, and finally, Does Changing Health Behaviors Help Your Arthritis? Lifestyle, Myths, and Solutions.
Together with top experts in the field of rheumatology, we developed state-of-the-art educational content in the form of webinars and podcasts, with separate programs geared toward patients and clinicians. We are also honored to feature the voices of members of the SpA and PsA communities, who generously shared their stories and experiences.
We hope you take some time to browse both the patient-focused and clinician-focused programs. Please reach out and let us know what you think, at email@example.com.
