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
The course has been designed in an innovative format combining asynchronous materials (e.g. pre-recorded sessions, reading lists and web-based resources) and live interactive sessions. A range of formats will be used to encourage active learning, including meet the expert question & answer sessions, focused discussions, scenario-based and case-based sessions as well as group work.
The live online sessions will take place on 9 – 10 June 2021 between 13.00 – 17.00 (UK time). Please note these timings may be subject to change.
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.
