AAOA Advanced Course in Allergy & Immunology 2019

Course Overview

JW Marriott

We get it. You’ve been to the Advanced Course on Allergy & Immunology, so you are wondering, “Should I go to Austin?”
The Advanced Course is not the same course from 10 years ago. In fact, it is not even the same course as last year.
Our Education Committee has been working to evolve the Advanced Course. Not only will you gain a more advanced perspective on the role of allergy in otolaryngology, you will learn in innovative and unique classroom settings. Changing the learning environment will offer more opportunities to not only learn from the esteemed faculty, but to also learn from your AAOA colleagues and peers. Read more

The online registration is closed. If you’d like to register, please call 202-955-5010 or email meetings@aaoallergy.org.

Thursday, December 12 – Saturday, December 14, 2019
JW Marriott, Austin, TX

Drs. Damask, Parker and Veling will lead the faculty for our annual Advanced Course in Allergy & Immunology that builds on the Basic Course and delves further into allergy diagnosis, management, and treatment.

Purpose

The Advanced Course in Allergy & Immunology builds on the basic clinical care of allergic patient concepts and techniques presented at the AAOA’s Basic Course in Allergy & Immunology. It delves into concomitant disease, comorbidities, organ-based symptomatology and disease management, and the more complicated patient.

Content Area

The AAOA CME program centers around clinical issues related to the care of allergy/immunology and inflammatory diseases of the airways and systems related to the head and neck.

The Advanced Course focuses on:

    • Immunology and efficacy of Immunotherapy (SCIT and SLIT)
    • Diagnosis and management of food allergy
    • Diagnosing and managing the pediatric patient
    • Advanced topics (aspirin-exacerbated respiratory disease, medication allergy, local allergy, stinging insect, skin allergy, oral, ophthalmic, and otologic manifestations)
    • Asthma diagnosis and management, including pulmonary function testing and biologics
    • Learning the latest on laryngologic topics and how it relates to allergy
    • Addendum guidelines for the prevention of peanut allergy in the US
    • USP 797 Compliance Training Workshop Learn more

Target Audience

The Advanced Course is structured for otolaryngologists integrating more allergy assessment and management into their practice, AAOA members providing specialized allergy care who need to remain current with literature-based evidence and practice trends, residents, PA/NPs who work in otolaryngology, and allied health staff who support their physicians in the management of allergic patients. The Advanced Course offers face-to-face opportunities with the faculty to discuss nuances and answer questions.

Expected Results

The Advanced Course is intended to advance physician competence and performance and is intended to result in improved patient care outcomes. Upon completion of the course, participants should demonstrate competence in the evaluation and management of the allergic patient, including utilization of appropriate testing techniques, implementation of environmental control, delivery of allergy pharmacotherapy, and delivery of safe immunotherapy.
