Event description
Our #ALLERGYONLINE Paediatric Update brings the very latest developments in care for those presenting with eczema, food allergies and wheeze

About this Event

This #ALLERGYONLINE webinar day is suitable for healthcare professionals recognising skin disorders, managing wheeze and possible allergic reactions.


Those living with allergies are suffering from less resource access and are presenting with worsened symptoms. Health services are having to innovate around virtual assessments, manage greater severity of presentations and up-date their care to include emerging knowledge and practice.

We have enhanced access to this live stream event and will ensure online access to the recordings for at least one month afterwards. Live-viewing delegates will be able to ask questions during the presentations, which will be answered through the chair-call-in afterwards.

The costs of running this event has been subsidised to ensure maximum access across all health care professionals during the Covid-19 autumn season.

Whether you may be watching from work, from home, in the evenings or between shifts, this event is designed to ensure you will not miss out on the opportunity to improve your practice and deliver the very latest quality steps in care for your patients.
