Hybrid course: live teaching sessions – 26 April, 10 & 12 May 2023
Online course materials available from 17 April 2023
This course will cover advanced aspects of allergic diseases in childhood, from the mechanisms underlying the ‘atopic march’ to difficult clinical scenarios such as multisystem allergic disease, immunodeficiency, adolescent transition and psychological or safeguarding issues. Practical workshops on infant weaning, food challenges and immunotherapy will be available.
Teaching delivery format
This short course will be delivered in a blended format which will include live online sessions as well as in person elements at our St Mary’s Campus – live streaming will be made available for those that are not able or do not wish to attend the face to face teaching sessions.
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) as well as live interactive sessions, both online and on campus. A range of formats will be used to encourage active learning, including ‘meet the expert question & answer’ sessions, focused discussions, interactive case-based sessions as well as group work. Practical ‘hands-on’ elements will be covered on the optional on campus half day.
