Allergy in Practice for Health Professionals 2018

Allergy in Practice 2017-2018

The Allergy in Practice course was developed in response to suggestions from delegates who attended our stand-alone study days. The course ran for the first time in 2016-2017 and the feedback has been positive and we will be running this again in 2017-2018. Students have told us they feel more confident in recognising manifestations of allergic disease and participate in discussions with their colleagues about the management of their patients. Students have particularly enjoyed the interactive case discussions and practical hands on sessions. Students were from a variety of areas; Children’s Nurses and Dietitians, GPs, Pediatricians with an interest in allergy and research nurses.

This course is designed to enhance knowledge and practical skills in the diagnosis and management of allergic disease. This course is for those who have a basic understanding of allergic disease and may have attended single study days in the past, but are looking to deepen their knowledge and develop their roles.
Teaching methods will comprise six formal, taught study days, completion of the BSACI competency document and completion of 37.5 hours practical hours in a relevant clinical setting. Following successful completion of the course you will have an enhanced understanding of allergic disease, with a particular focus on applying this knowledge to clinical situations, to inform decision making and practice.  

There is the option to add academic accreditation at level 6 or 7, as part of a Work Based Learning (WBL) module with Kings College London. This course may benefit you if you are and would like to undertake a module in allergic disease as part of a degree or masters pathway.
