The Foundations of Allergic Disease module provides the fundamental scientific, clinical and academic basis that you will build on throughout your studies. In this module, you will learn about normal immune responses and how these are modified in allergic disease. We explore the foundations of clinical allergy, starting with the cornerstone of taking an allergy-focused history and diagnostic testing. We will discuss the impact of allergic disease on quality of life through first-hand patient perspectives. Skin prick testing and medical devices used for the management of allergic disease will be explained and demonstrated. Study skills for Masters level are introduced, with practical support sessions where appropriate.
