Interest Group Allergy Diagnosis & Systems Medicine
We present cutting edge molecular, cellular and social media tools for allergy diagnosis in alternating theoretical and practical sessions. Participants will have learned from experts how to apply these tools, and will have discussed them in small group seminars with faculty.
Expected Learning Outcomes:
Key aspects of allergy diagnostics will be covered in this master class, entailing both theoretical and practical considerations:
A comprehensive overview of newly emerging biomarkers in allergy will be provided
Scientific background, indications, advantages, and tools for Component Resolved Diagnosis (CRD) and cellular allergy testing will be presented
Distinct clinical allergies such as food, inhalant, and insect venom allergies will be dealt with in specific talks by expert faculty
Mobile health technologies for the diagnosis and monitoring of allergy will be presented
Participants of the master class will learn how to integrate these components in state of the art allergy diagnosis
Master classes require a higher level of professional experience and offers an excellent platform for the exchange of knowledge. However, age is not a criterion for exclusion.
The present master class targets senior members of the Academy, with an already established (at least minimal) experience and interest in clinical allergy diagnostics.
The EAACI Master Class on Practical Allergy Diagnosis, Rauischholzhausen, Germany, 23/03/2018- 24/03/2018 has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) with 11 European CME credits (ECMEC®s). Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.
Through an agreement between the Union Européenne des Médecins Spécialistes and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME® credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Information on the process to convert EACCME® credit to AMA credit can be found at www.ama-assn.org/education/earn-credit-participation-international-activities.
Live educational activities, occurring outside of Canada, recognised by the UEMS-EACCME® for ECMEC®s are deemed to be Accredited Group Learning Activities (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
A CME Certificate with the specific number of acquired credits will be sent to all participants after the meeting. Please make sure you scan your badge at the entrance in front of each session room, in order to obtain the CME credits.
