This course will review recent advances across the developmental spectrum on the mechanisms underlying allergic airways diseases, including the role of genetic and environmental factors, the microbiome, and how this will impact future practice. There will be talks on assessing pulmonary physiology and other diagnostic tests. A rational evidence-based approach to the differential diagnosis, diagnostic work-up and management will be discussed. Challenging areas such as difficult asthma, adolescence and poor concordance will be addressed.
This course forms part of a range of two-day face-to-face short courses in Allergy which are available both to students who are enrolled on the MSc in allergy programme, and as stand-alone CPD programmes for GPs, specialist trainees and consultants, nurses, dietitians and other healthcare professionals wishing to improve their ability to manage allergic patients in daily practice.
