Global Approach

Our mission at the Global Healthcare Study on Psoriasis (GHSP) is to enhance the quality of psoriasis care and its accessibility in as many countries as possible worldwide.

The GHSP aims to create a comprehensive global database that encompasses the standards of psoriasis care, the impact of psoriasis on patients' lives, and the availability of different treatment options.

Inclusive Platform

A web-based software is used to collect data from dermatological specialists around the world. The software supports multiple languages and is accessible on desktop and mobile devices.

To ensure data consistency, standardized electronic Case Report Forms (eCRF) are used. By collecting data for different levels of context, we make it easy for as many specialists as possible to participate.
