Infant Allergy Virtual Conference 2021

For Healthcare Professionals


Organised by The British Journal of Midwifery, British Journal of Hospital Medicine, Journal of Health Visiting and Independent Nurse - the Infant Allergy Conference is a free virtual event, which will build on the knowledge and skills you need to improve outcomes for children suffering from allergies and their families.

With around 20% of the UK population affected by one or more allergic disorder, and a steady increase in rates of food allergy over the last decade, early intervention in childhood is vital to ensure timely, appropriate diagnosis and management. Recognising the expanding role of nurses, increased caseloads and the need for a multidisciplinary team approach, this virtual study day will benefit a range of health professionals working to provide effective, evidence-based care for children with allergies.
