Psoriatic Arthritis In America: What's That?

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

As an autoimmune condition, psoriatic arthritis is filled with unpredictability. For some, the intensity of PsA symptoms like pain or fatigue can vary by the hour; each day is different.

When people jump online to research the ins and outs of psoriatic disease, it can 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.

We hope to learn more about all things PsA, including surprising symptoms, financial impacts, and quality of life.

How can a survey help?

Validation is so important within the psoriatic community. Each person that takes the survey contributes to a better understanding of PsA and can help others who are going through it 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.

A psoriatic arthritis diagnosis can be challenging, but to learn more about the challenges of PsA and by taking our survey, you can bring awareness to the realities of life with psoriatic arthritis.

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 infographics filled with information about living with this debilitating condition.

But that’s not all – over the year, we publish articles based on learnings from the survey like this one how PsA impacts more than just bones and joints.

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 property of Health Union, LLC.
