On behalf of EAACI and the organizing committee we are happy to welcome you to the EAACI Allergy School on Anaphylaxis: Anaphylaxis revisited, taking place in Izmir, Turkey, 21-23 September 2023.
Anaphylaxis with its life-threatening potential has always been one of the most important emergencies of all clinicians. Therefore, it is essential to review the information we have in order to keep up with the recent advancements. In lectures and interactive workshops, we will discuss the causes, initiators and cofactors of anaphylaxis, possible preventive measures and management of anaphylaxis. Representatives from the Pediatric Section, Drug Allergy Interest Group and working groups on Biologicals and Hymenoptera Venom Hypersensitivity of EAACI will chair the related workshops and simulation-based hands-on CPR following anaphylaxis will be provided by anaesthesiologists. The participants will have the opportunity to communicate with the experts, practice implementation workshops and moreover present their work either orally or as paper posters.
Izmir, the third biggest city located in the west coast of Turkey, is famous with its historical places as well as spectacular coastal view and is easy to reach with its international airport.
We are delighted to welcome you to the Allergy School on Anaphylaxis: Anaphylaxis revisited and we look forward to seeing you in Izmir!
- The rate of allergic diseases is increasing every year worldwide in all age groups. Respiratory allergy, food, drug as well as insect allergy are the most prevalent conditions in clinical practice. Anaphylaxis is a clinical emergency with its life-threatening potential related to all these allergies in every age group.
- Since the clinical diagnosis is based on recognition of various presenting features of anaphylaxis, healthcare professionals should be familiar with the clinic of anaphylaxis and its management interventions. This could only be achieved by early recognition, risk factor assessment and proper management of the patients. The most appropriate management strategies could only be achieved by the education of all healthcare providers with the most recent scientific evidence in order to reduce morbidity or mortality rates.
- The goal of EAACI Allergy School of ‘Anaphylaxis: Anaphylaxis revisited is to look deeper into the most recent evidence and researches related to basic and clinical aspects and discuss it with young allergists, fellows and researchers coming from all over the world. Consequently, in collaboration with relevant EAACI sections and working groups, implementation workshops in various topics related to anaphylaxis will be the main objective.
- In addition, this friendly and interactive platform can supply a chance for new cultural and scientific opportunities for young researchers developing international networks and collaborations, as well as, getting in contact with the senior researchers and experts in the field of allergy. Participants will also be provided with the opportunity to present and discuss their own research studies in poster and oral presentation sessions.
In this allergy school, the causes, initiators and cofactors of anaphylaxis, possible preventive measures and management will be discussed in detail through lectures and interactive sections.
Expected learning outcomes
After the course attendants will be able to:
- learn epidemiology and understand the underlying mechanisms of anaphylaxis
- recognize the causes, risks, cofactors and comorbidities of anaphylaxis
- diagnose anaphylaxis and familiarise themselves with endotypes and phenotypes of anaphylaxis in both paediatric and adult patients
- know the biomarkers and other diagnostic tools that are being used
- learn the management of anaphylaxis
- perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation
- apply preventive measures of anaphylaxis
- know the principles of drug related anaphylaxis and desensitization protocols
- know the principles of anaphylaxis due to venom allergy and venom immunotherapy
- know the recent evidence about implementation of oral immunotherapy in children with food allergy and evaluation the risks for anaphylaxis
- discuss how to overcome anaphylaxis in challenging conditions (infant, pregnant, and elderly etc.)
- be aware of using of biologicals in the prevention of anaphylaxis
- be familiar with common biologicals causing anaphylaxis
Young allergists, fellows in allergy, EAACI junior members, nurses working in allergy as well as professionals of allergy and those with a particular interest in allergy.
In order to achieve an intimate and collegial atmosphere, to leave plenty of space for discussion, create optimum conditions for practical aspects, and for good communicational platform the number of international participants will be limited to around 100 international participants.
