Peanut Allergy Prevention Through Early Introduction


Available: 05/18/2021-05/17/2024


Price: $0.00
Member Price: $0.00


Over the last decade, research has led the way toward big shifts in recommendations about infant feeding to prevent peanut allergies. Starting with the Learning Early About Peanut Allergy (LEAP) Study and the change in the latest Dietary Guidelines for Americans, which includes early introduction of peanut and other allergens in their latest recommendations for healthy eating behaviors in the U.S, research shows many pediatricians still do not understand or embrace as the standard of care the early introduction of peanut foods. If they are aware, they may struggle with fitting the discussion into a visit. As a result, they may not effectively equip parents to prevent peanut allergies with this simple intervention.

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

● Describe why the food introduction guidelines were changed. 

● Prepare to discuss potential barriers to the early introduction of peanut foods.

● Identify infants who require evaluation prior to the introduction of peanut protein.

● Recognize the signs, symptoms, and treatment options of an allergic reaction.

● Explain early peanut protein introduction to parents and how to prepare infant-friendly peanut-containing foods.

● Effectively respond to common parental concerns regarding early introduction of peanut-containing foods.

This online course is eligible for Continuing Medical Education (CME) and Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Part 2 credit.
