Food allergy is a growing public health issue in the U.S. It is estimated that over 1-2% and up to 10% of the population has a food allergy.   Severe reactions can be fatal for food allergic individuals. In 2010 the National Institute of Allergic and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) convened an expert panel to review the evidence and develop guidelines for the diagnosis and management of food allergy. These guidelines reflect the best available evidence-based recommendations on the diagnosis and management of patients with food allergies.

This Practice Improvement Module (PIM) gives you the chance to compare your current practice to the recommendations in the guidelines and use simple quality improvement (QI) tools that are integral to practice improvement. You will learn about tools that can assist you with incorporating QI initiatives into your practice, which can impact patient care and outcomes. You will identify areas of practice strength and opportunities for improvement through the collection of patient and practice data, develop a QI plan, implement interventions, and complete a post-assessment process to determine if improvement was achieved.
