The Canadian Guide to Psoriasisby Kim Alexander Papp MD, PhD, FRCPC, Jenny Lass MA, RHN
Psoriasis is a lifelong, chronic skin disease that has far-reaching effects on the lives of approximately half a million Canadians. Most psoriasis patients undergo many failed treatments while 40% receive no treatment at all, unaware of the existing or new, effective therapies. The Canadian Guide to Psoriasis is the definitive Canadian guide for the treatment and management of psoriasis that fills this gap in knowledge. Including up-to-date information from the 2009 Canadian Psoriasis Guidelines and written by Dr. Kim Alexander Papp the foremost expert on psoriasis in Canada and Councilor for the International Psoriasis Council, The Canadian Guide to Psoriasis is a valuable resource for both patients and dermatologists.
This book covers everything from the various types of psoriasis, tests, and treatment options to the other diseases that often accompany psoriasis, caring for a child with psoriasis, psoriasis and pregnancy, as well as future developments in the treatment of psoriasis. Psoriasis is more than a dermatological condition - it can often lead to stigmatization, depression and suicidal thoughts. The Canadian Guide to Psoriasis is an all-encompassing book that addresses the medical, social and psychological aspects of the disease, providing information about how to manage stress, people's reactions, and sex and dating. Psoriasis patients can find everything they need in this book to live healthy and fulfilling lives.
