Abstract

Nonadherence to topical therapies for psoriasis is common. Reasons include miscommunication or inadequate communication between patients and clinicians, a mismatch between physician and patient treatment priorities, the complexity of treatment regimens, and a lack of information conveyed to the patient about realistic expectations from therapy. Interventions to facilitate communication and education are available to support clinicians and patients.
