Let's Talk PsO

Janssen Ireland has produced a video and podcast series to support and empower people living with psoriasis as they await access to vital healthcare services. Hosted by broadcaster, Dr Ciara Kelly, PsO Let’s Talk Psoriasis is the first series of its kind designed to bridge the gap in support for people awaiting specialist care, by providing access to expert guidance from leading Irish dermatologists to help people manage their psoriasis.

PsO Let’s Talk Psoriasis features a range of guests including healthcare experts and people living with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis providing insights and advice on a range of topics from treatment options, mental health, diet and nutrition, managing stigma and self-image. The panel will also answer some commonly asked questions as well as setting the record straight by busting some myths!


1. Newly Diagnosed Patients

Receiving a psoriasis diagnosis can be daunting but it's actually the first step towards managing the condition. The first episode of the four-part Beyond Expectations: PsO Let’s Talk Psoriasis series explains in simple terms what exactly psoriasis is, what causes it, and what a typical treatment journey might look like.

2. Living with Psoriasis

Learning to live with psoriasis presents its own unique challenges, especially during the period while people await access to specialist care. Episode two in our four-part Beyond Expectations: PsO Let’s Talk Psoriasis series focuses on common challenges faced by people living with psoriasis day-to-day.

3. Managing Paediatric Psoriasis

Psoriasis does not discriminate and affects children as well as adults. In this third episode of Beyond Expectations: PsO Let’s Talk Psoriasis, we will address some of the biggest concerns of parents of children living with psoriasis.

4. Understanding Psoriatic Arthritis

Our fourth and final episode in the Beyond Expectations: PsO Let’s Talk Psoriasis series looks at psoriatic arthritis which affects 30% of people living with psoriasis but is notoriously difficult to diagnose.1
