The Allergic Rhinitis Knowledge Centre and EACCME accredited CME are designed to improve your understanding of the diagnosis, treatment and management of allergic rhinitis and includes an allergy awareness section and real-life case studies.
Details include the pathophysiology of the inflammation driving allergic rhinitis (an IgE-mediated immune response can be caused by a number of triggers), sesitisation and the role of antigen-presenting cells, CD4+ T cells and Th2 cells. Symptoms including the 'allergic salute' and comorbidities such as allergic cojunctivitis, nasal polyps and otitis media are highlighted.
Management algorithms include the MACVIA-CDSS and integrated care pathways such as the MASK-rhinitis ICP are discussed. Treatment options include antihistamines, corticosteroids, anticholinergics, leukotriene receptor antagonists, cromones and their combinations.
Featuring details on ARIA guidelines, the pathophysiological response of sensitisation and early- and late-phase reaction, symptoms such as rhinorrhoea and nasal itching and comorbidities including asthma and migraine.
A wide range of treatments are available, and their combinations, such as antihistamines, corticosteroids, anticholinergics, leukotriene receptor antagonists, cromones. Professor Jean Bousquet discuss the need for faster and more effective treatments.
Highlighting the Allergic Rhinitis Control Test (ARCT), Rhinitis Control Assessment Test (RCAT) and the Visual Analog Scale (VAS), the treatment algorithm MACVIA-CDSS, and details of integrated care pathways such as the MASK-rhinitis ICP.
Apply your knowledge and understanding of the symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of allergic rhinitis to three case studies. See what the ARIA guidelines recommend based on their scores from the Visual Analogue Scale.
Professor Jean Bousquet introduces a diary app. and issues with commonly prescribed combination therapies, Doctor Glenis Scadding explains the connection between asthma and allergic rhinitis, a detailed infographic for nasal sprays and useful links.
EACCME accredited CME consisting of three learning modules: Defining allergic rhinitis and its underlying pathophysiology, Diagnosis and control of allergic rhinitis, Management of allergic rhinitis and common comorbidities.
