The DREAM Tool is proposed as the exciting inaugural project of the Canadian Rheumatology and Dermatology Working Group (CARD). DREAM promises to be a unique mobile educational app that caters to practitioners working in the field of autoimmune disease. Easy-access, practical, timely and specific information on topics such as systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), dermatomyositis (DM), mixed connective tissue disease (MCTD), systemic sclerosis (SSC) and psoriasis (PsO)/psoriatic arthritis (PsA) will be available, with clinical pearls, links to registries, recent literature, medication information and clinical photos. No such centralized and focused online tool currently exists to help manage patients with autoimmune disease.
