Allergy Testing and Immunotherapy for Primary Care Physicians Course Description

This course is a model for primary care physicians wanting to learn to administer and interpret allergy tests using multiple allergy applicators, and, when indicated, initiate and carry out an immunotherapy program to completion. Application and interpretation of results will be by active, hands on participation. This CME medical conference will review and update the clinical factors regarding allergic, non-allergic, and mixed rhino-sinusitis. It will address the relationship between rhino-sinusitis and asthma and recommend when allergy testing is indicated in this situation. Screening patients using a limited number of allergens is cost effective and should be done before testing for all allergens. Immunotherapy problems and their solutions will be presented. There will be ample time for questions.
