Last year we conducted a survey asking people with psoriasis, their carers/family and healthcare professionals what unanswered questions they had about psoriasis.

There were 819 respondents who in total submitted 2,185 questions!  With the help of our steering group we checked to ensure the questions submitted had not already been answered by research.  We then grouped together similar questions and summarised the wording. 

We are now asking you to help shorten this list by selecting the research areas that are most important to you.

This will help us understand which questions are most important to patients, carers and families, and healthcare professionals for future research.

Please take part if you are:
  • ­ a person who has psoriasis
  • ­ a carer/relative/friend of someone who has psoriasis
  • ­ a healthcare professional working with people with psoriasis
  • ­ from an organisation representing the interests of people with psoriasis.
We need you to choose up to ten questions that matter to you the most from our list of 55 questions.  On the first page you can select all that you think are of interest to you and on the second page you will be asked to reduce your choices to ten or less.

Further information about this project can be found on the Psoriasis Association website.

Keeping your information secure

This is an anonymous survey but we will ask for a little information about you.  This is so we can understand who is responding and ensure we are reaching as broad a range of people as possible.  We will keep the information you provide secure and confidential.

This survey should only take a few minutes to complete.
The Psoriasis Priority Setting Partnership is an independent group of patients and health professionals funded by the Psoriasis Association.  It is led by a research team at the University of Manchester, and overseen and monitored by the James Lind Alliance ( www.jla.nihr.ac.uk ), a not-for-profit organisation managed by the National Institute for Health Research Evaluation, Trials and Studies Co-ordinating Centre.
