CME Information

The National Psoriasis Foundation CME activities are based on identified professional practice gaps. The professional practice gaps are defined as the differences between the currently observed health care performance/outcomes and those potentially achievable. The National Psoriasis Foundation utilizes data from a variety of methods to identify professional practice gaps including: annual patient data from our constituents; advice and research from authorities in the dermatology and rheumatology specialties, the NPF Medical Board, faculty or staff; discussion in CME Education meetings; data from peer-reviewed journals, government sources, environmental scans, legislative, and regulatory or organizational changes affecting patient care and many more.
