2020 ABAI Continuous Assessment Program Online Literature Review
This literature review course 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 2020 term of the CAP to help develop greater familiarity with the key concepts included in them. This activity includes recordings of the Literature Review Course that was originally programmed for the 2020 AAAAI Annual Meeting.
The three presentations cover a range of clinical conditions central to the specialty, including:
- Mast Cell Disorders, Eosinophilic Disorders, Anaphylaxis, and Drug-Insect-Vaccine Allergy
- Asthma and Other Lung Disorders, Rhinosinusitis, Ocular Disorders and Allergy Testing and Therapeutics
- Food Allergy, Urticaria and Angioedema and other Allergic and Immunologic Skin Disorders
Click the Program tab to access the full list of articles, with links. Please note that All CAP articles can also 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 also be accessed through the ABAI web portal, and via the following PDF document:
