About this event

  • Date and time Thu 10 Jan 2019 from 8:30am to 8:30pm
  • Location Royal Society of Medicine
  • Organised by Paediatrics and Child Health

The LSP study days are organised by the Royal Society of Medicine and the London Specialty School of Paediatrics. The study days are aimed at ST4/5, although paediatricians at all levels of training and career find them of interest.

This meeting will cover a wide variety of allergy topics that a general paediatrician may encounter in their clinical practice. The topics include basic knowledge of allergy and hypersensitivity reactions, food and drug allergy, anaphylaxis and prevention of allergic disease.

Workshops will take place which will demonstrate the correct use of inhaler devices, application of eczema emollients and creams, nasal spray and adrenaline auto-injector use, and management plan formulation.

This study day will explore the importance of common allergic conditions and the significance of taking into consideration the increasing incidence of allergic diseases in modern societies, and the high level of anxiety that these conditions generate in families.

Topics include:

  • Understand common allergic problems
  • Food allergy diagnosis, investigations and management prevention of allergies
  • Insight into practical skills in skin prick testing and the use of preventable drugs
  • Recognise appropriate management for anaphylaxis
  • The definition and classification of hypersensitivity reactions
