Mastering Patient Care, Allergy and Asthma 2018

OPC Australia brought together a panel of world leaders in asthma and allergy management for this highly engaging and hands-on clinical skills education event worth 40CPD points and held at Victoria Park Function Venue in Brisbane

Here are some comments from our attendees:

The feedback at our table was just so positive and there was a palpable buzz of renewed energy building up as the day progressed.  There is no question that you have inspired some change in the QLD GP fraternity.

 The Mastering Asthma Allergy and Asthma was an excellent learning experience that I thoroughly enjoyed.  I would not hesitate to attend another (similar) session and would highly recommend it to my colleagues.

 By participating in the Mastering Patient Care, Allergy and Asthma, I enjoyed being exposed to the most current data and information presented by the competent panel of speakers. It was on the whole an useful event, and I  left home with lots of new information regarding management of the patients at the practice I am currently working.

 This workshop has greatly improved my understanding of diagnosis, management and treatment of asthma and allergic disease.

 Very useful Workshops demonstrating asthma, prick testing, FeNO and device technique.
