Training and education
For GPs and Paediatricians
Graduate Certificate in Allergic Diseases is available for medical practitioners. The Graduate Certificate, through the University of Western Sydney, is designed for medical practitioners who want to improve their care of patients with allergic diseases.
Students, who must be registered medical practitioners, will complete an online scientific program and attend a regional specialist Immunology Clinic, over a total period of two years, on a part-time basis.
New Zealand medical practitioners are eligible to enrol and several are currently undertaking the programme.
Online Toolkit for Medical Practitioners on Diagnosing Food Allergy in Children in Primary CareThis toolkit looks at diagnosing and managing IgE-mediated FA’s in children. Additionally, anaphylaxis, asthma and eczema are overviewed as stand- alone topics.
The content has been developed by Dr Jan Sinclair, Dr Kylie Morse, and Dr Yaw Moh on behalf of the Goodfellow Unit with input from Allergy New Zealand, Dr Shannon Brothers and Dr Rohan Ameratunga.
The toolkit has been created by the Goodfellow Unit at The University of Auckland. This was funded in part by the Auckland Faculty Board of the Royal New Zealand College of General Practitioners.
