Self-care for older people with psoriasis.

Summary of "Self-care for older people with psoriasis."

Psoriasis affects 1.5% of the UK population and due to the ageing population it is more common in older people. The incidence of type II psoriasis peaks in patients between 57 and 62 years of age, and has different genetic markers. Chronic plaque psoriasis can be challenging for older people as the majority are treated in primary care and expected to self-manage. Community nurses can support older people with psoriasis and their families in understanding current evidence based psoriasis management, and finding solutions to these challenges.
