Program Description

The prevalence of allergic diseases, including atopic dermatitis and food and respiratory allergies, has been rising dramatically during the last 2 decades, particularly among children. Allergic diseases can impair a child’s physical and mental health, diminish quality of life for the entire family, and increase costs for family and society. To advise parents how to avoid initial atopy and the “allergic march” in their children, clinicians must be up to date about optimal nutritional and environmental strategies. The case study interwoven throughout this monograph illustrates how to help a mother with an allergic child reduce her new baby’s risk for allergy.

Intended Audience

Pediatricians, pediatric nurse practitioners, pediatric physician assistants, nurses, registered dietitians, and other health care professionals involved in the care of children

At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:

  • Describe the effect of the increasing problem of pediatric allergic diseases, particularly atopic dermatitis, on quality of life for patient and family
  • Evaluate current evidence about the health economics of preventing vs. managing allergy symptoms in pediatric patients
  • Assess data that demonstrate the long-term effects of optimal nutrition in preventing infant allergy
  • Recommend or implement nutritional and environmental strategies, including those for pregnant and lactating mothers, to prevent allergy in pediatric patients
  • Provide the most up-to-date care and counsel for patients and their families for the prevention of pediatric allergic diseases
