This course will be delivered in a hybrid format. This includes pre-recorded materials, live online sessions, and you can also attend in person teaching or choose to follow this online. 

Live teaching sessions – 24 January & 9 February 2024
Online course materials available from: 8 January 2024

In this course led by Prof Stephen Durham and Dr Guy Scadding you will learn and gain an advanced understanding of the importance of upper airway diseases in the allergy clinic, respiratory clinics and primary care. You will learn to differentiate between rhinitis and rhinosinusitis, understanding their pathophysiology and managing them accordingly. You will explore the mechanisms and clinical use of allergen immunotherapy, enabling you to identify appropriate patients and initiate treatment/refer accordingly.

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) to revise in your own time, and live interactive sessions both online and on campus 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.

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