The Allergy Academy aims to provide high quality, evidence-based educational events to a wide range of healthcare professionals. Cost and location are often a barrier for healthcare professionals and trainees who would like to attend courses, especially as study leave budgets are becoming smaller and clinical commitments have become overwhelming.
In order to ensure our training and events remain accessible, we benefit from financial support provided by our commercial sponsors and work conscientiously within our Code of Conduct for Working with the Commercial Sector. Our sponsors provide a significant contribution to the Academy in the form of 'unrestricted grants', which means that commercial representatives do not have any editorial control over the educational content of the Allergy Academy events. This allows us to substantially subsidise the price that we charge attending delegates. The commercial sponsors benefit from visibility to delegates within the exhibition areas of our events and from our providing practical allergy management training for over 1000 delegate places per year.
The Allergy Academy benefits from a wide range of sponsors who compete mutually within the allergy market. The Academy is not partisan to individual companies. It does not recommend or endorse specific products or educational events supported by only one sponsor.
We are very grateful for our sponsors' support, without which our educational platform would not be thriving. We are proud of our providing high quality education amongst an area of particular clinical need to help support better care for patients.
