Quoting CSPA: “In 2017, The Canadian Skin Patient Alliance (CSPA) conducted a literature search and survey of patients with HS (formally diagnosed or self-diagnosed) to answer critical questions regarding gaps in patient care, and deficiencies in provincial healthcare systems. The focus of this research was to describe the patient experience from diagnosis and beyond, including path to diagnosis, symptom control, experience with treatments, healthcare utilization, patient needs, and impact on quality of life.”
