This meeting is focused on how identifying and managing allergy can help you improve the management of your patients with asthma, rhinitis, food allergy and Coeliac Disease. The meeting, which will be in an informal style which creates a lively discussion environment, is a practical training day; GPs and clinical experts will discuss how they use allergy testing in everyday practice, how allergy testing has changed how they manage their patients, what you need to do to request testing, and how to interpret results.
