It was a brilliant course especially for me doing SPIN respiratory module. I am very much looking forward to attending PAT 2 and PAT 3!


Our Paediatric Allergy Training (PAT) series is designed to enhance your knowledge and confidence in managing children with food allergies and their comorbid allergic conditions.

To gain the full benefit from this unique series, we advise delegates to begin with PAT 1 and work through to PAT 3. The series will cover increasing complexity in allergy management through PAT 1, 2 and 3.


This course will take you through the practical aspects of recognising and managing paediatric allergy, including how to take an allergy focused history, skin prick testing and first line management of cow’s milk allergy.

Using interactive workshops, we will explore best practice in managing the ‘unsettled infant’, recognition of anaphylaxis, eczema care and the identification of aeroallergens, inhalers and nasal sprays.

The faculty for the PAT series comprise a multidisciplinary 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.

This is one of the best courses I have ever attended. The practical knowledge I gained is beyond all expectations. Paediatricians who are in a DGH setting will find it enormously helpful

Pre-course learning

In advance of this course, you will be required to complete an eLearning module, which takes about one and half hours.

Aim and learning outcomes

The PAT courses provide healthcare professionals with the knowledge and skills required to effectively manage children with food allergies and their comorbid allergic conditions.

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • take an allergy focused clinical history to interpret specific IgE results
  • explain core allergy problems, specific IgE tests and basic disease mechanisms
  • demonstrate good emergency management of food allergy and common allergic conditions
  • describe first line diagnosis and dietary management strategies for cow’s milk allergy; and list pregnancy, lactation, weaning diets for all children
  • signpost patients to online resources and available multidisciplinary resources
  • outline the importance of teaching and learning in a multidisciplinary environment.

Target audience

PAT 1 is suitable for all professionals seeing children with allergic disease.

Excellent course taught by experts in a structured and easy to understand manner
