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.
