In this 4-day short course you will study a comprehensive overview of food hypersensitivity in children and in adults and develop a robust understanding of the scientific basis underpinning its pathophysiology, diagnosis, prevention and management. This will enable you to develop your skills in identifying, planning the management and treatment of these patients, including in somewhat complex or challenging circumstances, from IgE and non IgE mediated allergy, to other immune and non-immune mediated food hypersensitivities.
Teaching delivery format
The course has been devised in an attractive and innovative format combining asynchronous materials (e.g. pre-recorded sessions, reading lists and web-based resources) to revise in your own time, as well as live interactive online sessions which will include focused discussions and case-based elements. A range of formats will be used to encourage active learning, including expert panel question & answer sessions, group work, workshops, role-play, pro-con debates and scenario-based sessions.
The live online sessions will take place on 19 – 22 April 2021 between 13.00 – 17.00. Please note these timings may be subject to change.
This course forms part of a range of 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.
