Pediatric Allergies: Management & Prevention- 1.5 Free Nursing CEUs

pedi allergiesPreventing Vs Managing Pediatric Allergies: Clinical and Economic Impact of Nutritional and Environmental Interventions– The prevalence of allergic diseases, including atopic dermatitis and food and respiratory allergies, has been rising dramatically during the last two 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.
