Price: NOW 20% OFF! $20 members, $28 non-members

You can earn up to 1.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™, and up to 1.75 MOC Part II Self-Assessment credits. 

Data and guidelines supporting early allergen (specifically peanut) introduction are new. These recommendations evolve former practice that supported either delay in peanut introduction (AAP, 2000), and then equipoise/no benefit in delay in the timing (AAP, 2008 and AAAAI 2013). Because the guidelines are new, there are no practical recommendations as to how to implement the new policy nor how to integrate an anticipated influx of referrals of high-risk infants requiring in-office peanut introduction into the office-based practice.
