Virtual Patients: Is Allergen Immunotherapy the Right Choice for Your Patient?

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

In these patient simulations, you will assess the appropriateness of allergen immunotherapy (AIT) for patients with particular health characteristics.

Using evidence from the literature, you will determine if it is likely that immunotherapy will be safe and effective in various clinical scenarios. In some cases, you may need to help your patients gain control of other symptoms before starting AIT.

You will differentiate the appropriateness of subcutaneous versus sublingual immunotherapy (SCIT versus SLIT) based on patient’s clinical characteristics and test results, and in patients who are not appropriate candidates for immunotherapy, you will have the opportunity to prescribe alternative treatment.
