Introducing Informatree - a new website from the Group for Research and Assessment of Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis (GRAPPA)
Informatree is a free web resource aimed at helping people with psoriatic arthritis live well.
The Group for Research and Assessment of Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis (GRAPPA) is delighted to launch the brand new Informatree website resource.
People living with psoriatic arthritis worked together with health care professionals who treat people with the condition, psychologists and researchers to develop the new resource. The contents were agreed upon by people living with psoriatic arthritis and clinicians.
The project was led by the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom, and informed by people living with psoriatic arthritis worldwide.
The resource is designed for people with psoriatic arthritis and those who help support them. If this applies to you, you can use Informatree by yourself or with your healthcare provider. It looks at different health behaviours people can adapt to help manage their psoriatic arthritis symptoms.
It covers fifteen topics, including fatigue, keeping active, mood and sleep. The resources are not intended to focus on drugs or medications. There are freely downloadable action plans for each topic. Users are encouraged to make a practical plan to try out.
The information is based on the best available evidence and most up-to-date advice. Web links have been provided to all of the research studies used to create the resource. It is intended to complement the other medical treatments people have been recommended for their psoriatic arthritis.
People from any country are welcome to use Informatree.
