Initially developed as a concept in Ireland by LEO Pharma’s team of dermatology (skin) experts and in partnership with healthcare professionals, QualityCare™ is a free and confidential service to support people living with psoriasis that is founded on decades of innovative and people-focused initiatives. Illustrating LEO Pharma’s commitment to support the community beyond treatment, QualityCare™ provides relevant and credible information to those with psoriasis, including information about treatment options and disease management through holistic and multichannel support.
QualityCare™ provides meaningful support to the 60,000 people living with psoriasis globally who have signed up to the programme to date. As well as diet and nutrition advice, QualityCare™ includes The Blogger Universe, which houses real stories from real people living with psoriasis and MindBoost, a stress management and mindfulness tool developed in collaboration with expert consultants in dealing with stress.
Following its overwhelming success at LEO Pharma UK/IE affiliate level, QualityCare™ is now available throughout all LEO Pharma hubs and has recently been extended to support people with cancer associated thrombosis.
“QualityCare™ is an excellent service and a welcome addition to the range of information services available to patients and carers…I encourage colleagues to guide their patients to it.”Dr Keith Freeman, Consultant Dermatologist, County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust, Sunderland
As part of QualityCare™, LEO Pharma produced MyPso, a free app which lets users log and identify their psoriasis triggers and flare-ups. The trigger and flare-up data can then be shared with healthcare professionals in order to further understand how to minimise psoriasis flares. Additionally, MyPso data can also be anonymously shared with other users, helping to paint a psoriasis picture of the world.
