How It Works

As part of the research study, participants are asked to complete questionnaires about their psoriasis history, medical history, current and past medication treatments, and quality of life. These questionnaires will be available online. You will be provided with a visit log in ID and password on the date of each of your visits to complete your questionnaires.

How do I log on?

Once you have your ID and Password, follow these steps:

1. Go to http://psoriasis.nhlbi.nih.gov (or click on the Home link from the menu on the left side of this page).

2. Click on the Visit Log In link.

3. Enter the ID and Password provided for you.

Remember, your ID and password are unique to you and allow you to access only your own questionnaires. No one else can access or see them.

What if I lose my ID or password?

Email us and we will send it to you: (mansi.mehta2@nih.gov).

How do I answer the questions?

Just click on the questionnaire names to get started. Follow the on screen prompts and the links to all of the different surveys listed. Please email with any questions.

How do I save my answers on the questionnaire?

If you have just finished a questionnaire, click 'Submit: I'm Finished.' If you are part-way through a questionnaire, click 'Save: I'll Finish Later.' Then close the window. When you log on again, the questionnaire that you were working on will be listed as 'In Progress.' When you click on it, you can continue answering the questions that remain. Once the completed questionnaire has been saved, you cannot go back to it.

Please note: your answers will not be saved if you leave the website idle for 30 minutes. Be sure to click either the 'Submit: I'm Finished' or 'Save: I'll Finish Later' button (at the end of each questionnaire) before leaving the computer or closing your browser.

What if I make a mistake?

There are no right and wrong answers in this study. If you click on a response that you did not intend, simply click on the answer you meant to give. Some questions will accept multiple choices. In that case, click again on the unintended response to "undo" it.

Are my answers confidential?

The NIH takes confidentiality of participants very seriously. Your answers are confidential to the extent possible under the law.
