Developing new guidance for healthcare professionals looking after teenagers and young adults with allergies and/or asthma.
It is important that young people learn how to self-manage their allergies and/or asthma. Adolescence can be a challenging time for them and their parents with all the changes that occur over that time. Healthcare professionals may not focus on the specific challenges that this age group faces.
The European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) is developing advice for doctors and nurses who look after young people with allergies and/or asthma. They are looking for feedback to improve the advice that they are currently developing.
EAACI is looking for young people aged 11 to 25 years with allergies and/or asthma or parents of a young person of this age to help. They expect it to take about 15-20 minutes to complete the survey.
The link to the survey is: https://www.eaaci.org/4686. The survey will be open until 16th March 2020.
Thank you in advance.
