PsA should be diagnosed as early as possible to slow down joint damage and progression of disability.

The pain CST program involved 11 telephone-based sessions over 3 months. Outcomes were assessed at baseline, 3 months (primary), and 9 months, and included the Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC) pain subscale (primary outcome), WOMAC total score and function subsc...
