For patients

We designed QualityCare for patients just like you – who have plaque psoriasis and would like additional support and resources.

This confidential program offers:

  • Patient Support — Get in touch with our specialists who are available to answer on-label questions about LEO products at 1-877-494-4536
  • Latest News — Learn more about the physical, emotional, and other aspects of plaque psoriasis. Watch videos of people also working to tackle plaque psoriasis head-on.

For caregivers

Having a loved one with plaque psoriasis can be difficult for you, too. That's why we also offer you the resources of QualityCare.

QualityCare gives you the same experience that a patient has. This journey helps you relate more to your loved one, and lets you learn how to support them.

3 ways you can support:

  1. Get informed—Read articles and watch patient videos to help you understand plaque psoriasis. Ask how you can help. The best way to find out what someone needs is to ask.
  2. Support treatment—Go with your loved one to the doctor. You can help them better understand their disease and help encourage them to stay with their treatment plan
  3. Offer stress relief—Plaque psoriasis and stress can be related. Stress can trigger a flare-up, while flare-ups can cause more stress. Do your best to help create a stress-free environment for your loved one

“I am not the only one out there with this.”
