Course summary

This is the third of a series of three Paediatric Allergy Training study days that focus on the practical clinical management of allergy in children and young people.

Course description

This course will take you through the practical aspects of recognising and managing paediatric allergy. Topics covered include: urticaria, venom allergy, drug allergy and complex allergy cases.

Using interactive workshops, we will explore severe non IgE mediated food allergy, ‘grey cases’ of food allergy, anaphylaxis, and the management of severe eczema as well as severe asthma.

The faculty for the PAT series consists of a multi-disciplinary team of expert consultants, senior nursing staff, dietitians and GPs working in allergy care across the UK, who will share real life examples and cases throughout the course to support your learning.
