About this event

  • Date and time Thu 29 Sep 2022 from 9:00am to 5:00pm
  • Location Online
  • Organised by Clinical Immunology and Allergy, Allergy Academy

The Allergy Academy is proud to Partner with the Royal Society of Medicine to put together a joint event focusing on new developments in allergy medicine. We have gathered experts on the 21st century pragmatic implementation of clinical care for common conditions such as food allergy as well as unusual conditions such as FPIES and LTP allergy. Click here to join us in person.

Focusing on patient needs and values-based care allows us to plan management appropriately with reduced resources and less clinical space; especially important in the COVID era. Our aims ensure we are putting patients in the driving seat and are enabling the best care whilst adapting to the needs of the patient. We aim to emphasise specific priorities of adolescents, those living with anxieties and patients wanting treatments that are arriving in clinical practice.

The meeting will develop the clinicians’ ability to tailor management according to:

  • Thresholds of allergen reaction
  • Anxiety
  • Prospect of immunotherapy
  • Adolescence
  • Assessing the most valuable aspects of care for the patient
  • Inclusion and equity of care

Specific guidance around new syndromes:

  • FPIES management
  • LTP allergy
