Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA) is an inflammatory arthritis estimated to occur in 15% of people with psoriasis, affecting around 150,000 people in the United Kingdom (UK). The 2015 European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR) Treatment recommendations for PsA incorporating as its first recommendation that "treatment should be aimed at reaching the target of remission or, alternatively, minimal/low disease activity, by regular monitoring and appropriate adjustment of therapy". Despite the evidence and the EULAR recommendations supporting 'treat to target' in PsA, it has not been widely implemented due to concerns about feasibility and cost-effectiveness. This cohort will establish a pragmatic feasible 'treat to target' approach in a real-life clinic population which we believe can provide similar clinical and health-related quality of life outcomes. The primary outcome will be the proportion of patients achieving a good response measured by the PsA Disease Activity Score (PASDAS) at 48 weeks. Additional domains including participation, fatigue and emotional wellbeing will be assessed for the first time. Finally the costs of this pragmatic intervention will be established using health economic analysis.All patients will receive treatment as usual following the current British Society of Rheumatology (BSR) and EULAR guidance as standard of care. As a cohort for a "Trials within Cohorts" or TWiCs design, the patients consenting to participate will also be asked if they consent to be approached for future interventional trials linked to the cohort and whether they consent for their data to be used as a comparator in these future interventional studies.
