Anaphylaxis and severe allergy can be a frightening experience for both patient and carer. This module is designed for both patients and carers to gain knowledge on the important issues in the recognition and treatment of severe allergy. On submission of your answers for each question, a detailed explanation is provided.
It has been authored by physicians with expertise in the field of acute allergy, as well as general medicine. The questions were developed to be enjoyable, but to also test your knowledge and explain important areas of anaphylaxis.
Once you complete the module - and achieve the minimum pass rate of 60% - you'll be awarded with a downloadable 1 hour CPD Certificate, which you can print or upload to your CPD Portfolio.
