How to manage: Paediatric allergy
20 April 2015
9.00 - 5.00
6 CPD credits
Forming part of the How to manage series, this practical course will feature updates on current epidemiology, NICE guidelines and how to take an allergy focussed history, case based discussions on peanut, egg and milk allergy with subject matter experts and practical workshops on anaphylaxis, topical treatments and skin prick testing.
Designed for a wide audience but will be of particular interest for general or community paediatric trainees who are developing a special interest in allergy and for consultant paediatricians who are already seeing cases within their practice and/or managing allergy clinics.
Chaired by leading allergy experts:
- Dr Mich Lajeunesse, Consultant in Paediatric Allergy, Southampton General Hospital
- Dr Trevor Brown, Consultant in Paediatric Allergy, The Ulster Hospital
By the end of the day the participants should be able to:
- be able to take allergy focused history
- understand the value and shortcomings of allergy testing in relation to history
- be able to outline a management plan for treatment of food allergy
- demonstrate the use of common devices for treatment of allergy including skin prick testing and anaphylaxis.
