In the introduction to this text, we noted that our experience working together in a cooperative clinic treating psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis allowed us to give our patients what we considered to be better care. We believed that the information we had derived from our own experience, working within our respective specialties, would help each of us, our trainees, and our patients to better understand the range of issues that need to be considered when making therapeutic decisions. By integrating the chapters of this book along these same lines our goal was to make the current information regarding psoriatic disease of both skin and joints readily available and relatively easy to grasp for practitioners caring for their patients. In this brief conclusion to this text, we hope to provide a synthesis of some of the most salient points raised in these chapters and apply them to the fundamental question facing each of us: how best to care for patients who suffer both from psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis.
