Virtual Patient: Soccer Coach too Busy for Shots

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

This case simulation involves a female high school soccer coach with seasonal allergic rhinitis that has not been well controlled with over-the-counter medications. Symptoms have progressively worsened over the past four summers since she returned to Baltimore, Maryland, and now include cough and wheezing.

She is interested in allergen immunotherapy but travels out of town frequently and wants to know about alternatives to immunotherapy injections (shots).
