2022 ABAI Continuous Assessment Program Literature Review - January-June
This literature review course, originally presented as part of the 2022 AAAAI Annual Meeting, will help to prepare ABAI diplomates to participate in the Continuous Assessment Program (CAP). The course will include reviews of the journal articles selected for the January-June 2021 term of the CAP to help develop greater familiarity with the key concepts included in them.
The five presentations cover a range of critical journal articles in the following topic areas:
- Food and Drug Allergy/Hypersensitivity Reactions and Eosinophilic or Gastrointestinal Disorders
- Conditions of the Head/Neck and Lungs
- Dermatologic Conditions and Anaphylaxis
- Immune Hypersensitivity Disorders and Immunodeficiencies
- Emerging National Health Priorities
Click the Program tab to access the full list of articles, with links. Please note that all CAP articles can be accessed through the ABAI web portal.
- Allergist/Immunologists participating in continuous certification with the American Board of Allergy & Immunology
- Allied health providers working in allergy/immunology settings
- Allergy/Immunology Fellows-in-Training preparing for initial certification
- Other healthcare providers with an interest in allergy/immunology
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Evaluate recently published research relevant to the practice of allergy/immunology
All CAP articles are listed, below.
Articles can be accessed through the ABAI web portal.
