NDORMS and GRAPPA (the Group for Research and Assessment of Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis) have launched Informatree, a new web resource to help people living with Psoriatic Arthritis.

The project was led by the University of Oxford, but informed by people with psoriatic arthritis around the world and the clinicians who treat them, as well as psychologists and researchers. Informatree has been based on the best available evidence and most up-to-date advice, and includes links to all the research studies that were used to create the resource. 

The resource is designed for people suffering from Psoriatic Arthritis and those who help support them. They can use it by themselves or with their healthcare provider. It looks at different health behaviours people can adapt to help them manage their symptoms.

It covers fifteen topics, including fatigue, keeping active, mood and sleep. The resources are not intended to focus on drugs or medications, and should complement other medical treatments recommended for Psoriatic Arthritis. There are freely downloadable action plans for each topic, and users are encouraged to make a practical plan to try out. 

People from any country are welcome to use Informatree.

The Informatree project was led by Professor Laura Coates and supported by the Group for Research and Assessment of Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis network (GRAPPA).
