Paediatric Allergy

Hybrid course: live teaching sessions – 29 April, 13 & 16 May 2024
Online course materials available from – 15 April 2024

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 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. 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.

A ‘course launch webinar’ will be held in April for registered participants to introduce the course and help you get organised to maximize your learning experience.
