NEWCASTLE UNIVERSITY ALLERGY E-MODULE

 

Newcastle University offers a 15-week online programme for clinicians who manage patients with allergy in either hospital or community settings.

The programme covers allergy topics on a week by week basis and gives allergy practitioners a solid grounding in immunology, anaphylaxis, food allergy (including non-IgE allergy [previously known as intolerance]), eczema, urticaria, drug allergy, asthma and allergic rhinitis. The course is designed to integrate essential theory with the realities of everyday practice and takes account of new research findings and emerging treatments.

The faculty for the e-module consists of a multidisciplinary team of expert consultants, senior nursing staff and dietitians working in allergy care across the northern region.

Learners have the opportunity to utilise a number of innovative and interactive teaching modalities, as well as direct dialogue with faculty through synchronous webinars, and with other students in online group activities. The resources are intended to promote critical appraisal, case management and a greater understanding of the relevant evidence-based practice and emerging treatments.

The course fee is currently £960, but a number of educational grants are available to applicants.
