Cover image for lecture: Current Challenges in Allergy Management

Lecture Overview

There is a plethora of new evidence relating to allergies, their diagnosis and their management. However, the sheer ease of which people can find and share information through the internet and social media means that health professionals are often confronted with people who have received advice lacking substantial evidence. This session will discuss what this means for current practice.
