#ALLERGYONLINE: Integrating Care - 'Mind the Gap' (an RCGP Collaboration)

Thursday 11th November 2021

Course information:

This is the thirteenth 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 practioners with the skills and confidence necessary to triage, diagnose and manage allergic disease in the community across children and adult patients using remote access with limitted time. 

This day focuses on the extremes of age groups; young childen presenting with allergic disease, as well as adults and the elderly who are more likely to present with plausible drug allergic reactions. This day is particularly targeted towards doctors and nurses working in the primary care setting, but any interested trainees, healthcare professionals and students are welcome to attend.

We are also proud to be partnering with the Newcastle Upon Tyne Hospitals Foundation Trust, in order to bridge the North-South gap as well as the age gap; collaborating across the UK for national primary care and secondary care integration.
