World Directory of Psoriasis Medical Resources
An interactive world map directory based on the survey “World Listing of Psoriasis Medical Resources for Patients” (2013-2014). With this survey we have been identifying the different psoriasis services made available to patients (dedicated inpatient/outpatient facilities, available treatments, therapeutic education, etc.).
The results of the survey will serve as the base for building an easy-to-access interactive map directory at the service of GPs and patients from all over the world. This directory will be available soon (3rd quarter of 2014) within PIN’s website.
