This is intended to be completed by patients who have already been diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis by a medical professional.
Psoriatic arthritis affects each person differently.1 There are six different manifestations through which the disease can present itself10 – sometimes called ‘domains’ by healthcare professionals. Each person will have their own unique combination of domains, with varying levels of involvement. It is possible you may be affected by one or a combination of two or more domains, or even by all six of them. This questionnaire is intended to help you better understand which of the six domains you experience and the impact they have on your day-to-day activities.
Join over 630 other respondents and complete the questionnaire to discover your combination. It would allow you to understand your individual disease better, and you will be provided with a summary of your results to help inform discussions with your rheumatologist.
This is not a diagnostic tool or a guide for selecting treatment options. For advice on treating your psoriatic arthritis, please speak with your doctor.
The questionnaire will take around 5 minutes to finish.
