CPEU Course Description

One of the major confers in the practice of allergy is related to the safety of procedures for the diagnosis and treatment of allergic disease.  The increased prevalence of allergic diseases makes it mandatory to use quick, precise, and reliable diagnostic tools.  This CPEU course discusses several evidence-based and practical arguments to establish that, in most cases, conventional in vivo methods to confirm allergy sensitivity should not currently be replaced by molecular-based allergy diagnostics (MA-Dx).  A consensus report is also provided, assessing risk and proposing safety requirements for performing procedures.

Brooke H. Dekofsky, MPH, RD, CLE, CDE was involved in the creation of this course.
