About 0.25% of Canadians have or may have PsA, but the exact numbers are unknown. Doctors do know that PsA is diagnosed in about 30% of patients attending. As the international psoriasis community prepares to commemorate a day of awareness and education on World Psoriasis Day on October 29, the results of a new survey provide a better understanding of the physical and emotional struggles Canadians with psoriasis live with every day. Stress, social life, relationships, isolation, and treatment satisfaction are at the top of the list of concerns for Canadians.
