Psoriatic Arthritis In America: What's That?

At this time, our survey is currently closed. By signing up for our email list, you'll be among the first to have first-hand access to our most recent survey results.

Asking for help can feel stir feelings of failure. Canceling plans brings on the self-consciousness of seeming unreliable. Treatment options are overwhelming and disease progression is a constant fear. These are all the unseen symptoms of psoriatic arthritis. An unfortunate reality that those with the condition face daily. 

Are you one of the millions of people managing life with psoriatic arthritis? Whether you’re waiting to start treatment, currently on treatment, or finding yourself in remission, we want to hear from you.

When people jump online to research the ins and outs of psoriatic disease, it can be difficult to find reliable resources and information. Even more difficult can be finding someone who has is living with PsA to connect with, validate, and share experiences.

What will the survey ask me?

The survey will ask about diagnosis, symptoms, symptom management, quality of life and relationships, healthcare professional engagement, and treatment awareness and experience. We do not require your name, address, or other personal information. 

Please note that you do not have to take the survey all at once. Feel free to bookmark the survey in your Internet browser and return when you are able. You will resume where you left off.

How can a survey help?

Each person that takes the survey contributes to a better understanding of psoriatic arthritis. Better understanding leads to better research. It also is an opportunity to help others feel less alone. Sharing experiences in the survey can reveal how similar each person’s journey with PsA is, as well as the differences that make each journey unique.

"Wow, I feel seen" or "I feel that I could have written this" are just a few comments we've seen in the community when someone shares their experience. It's the power of validation in action.

What happens after I take the survey?

Each year after the survey closes, the Editorial Team at Psoriatic-arthritis.com takes your responses and creates an infographic sharing results and uncovering the true reality of managing life with this condition. But that’s not all – over the year, we publish articles based on learnings from the survey like this one about the impact of flares or a look at the painful reality of remission.

Each article that is published using responses from the survey leads to more information available to those affected by PsA and helps them connect with those with similar experiences.

How do we use the In America Survey data?

Survey responses help us and our partners better understand the PsA community. All survey responses are kept confidential, reported only in total (your specific responses will not be reported individually), and will become the property of Health Union, LLC.
