Thursday 27th May 2021 to Thursday 17th June 2021

The Allergy Academy are delighted to annouce our 2021 GP Afternoons Series! We are running a series of paired afternoons on a range of cross-speciality subjects, in association with the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP). These paired afternoons are designed to cover a wide range of clinical conditions including dermatological, gastrointestinal, and ENT/respiratory disorders. Each set will be delivered during two afternoon sessions to enhance accessibility to these live-streamed events during the COVID period. Recording of these afternoons will be available, to ensure greater flexibility to access the material and expertise. Question and Answer sessions are a quality feature of all our sessions.

This programme will focus on common gastrointestinal disorders in infants and children and will examine the role of non-IgE mediated food allergies and nutrition in the management of children. Expertise will be drawn from a panel of imminent speakers to discuss the most up-to-date preventive strategies, diagnostic tests, and treatments for patients with allergic and non-allergic gastrointestinal disease.

The course is suitable for all healthcare professionals caring for patients with food allergies, including dietitians, doctors and allied health care professionals. 

The first afternoon will take place on Thursday 27th May and the second afternoon will take place on Thursday 17th June.
