Course information:

This is the seventh in our series of joint study days hosted by the Allergy Academy and the Royal College of General Practitioners. Our aim is to equip healthcare practitioners with the skills and confidence necessary to diagnose and manage allergic disease in the community. This time we focus particularly on allergic disease (asthma, rhinitis and eczema) in children. This day is particularly targeted towards doctors and nurses working in the primary care setting, but any interested healthcare professionals are welcome to attend.

Learning objectives:
