The background notes explain that allergic diseases, including asthma, allergic rhinitis, food allergies, atopic dermatitis and urticaria, are increasing worldwide with 30% to 40% of the population suffering from at least one form of allergy. The medical practitioner likely to be visited by such patients is the primary care clinician. But how confident do you feel to diagnose and treat their allergy? The purpose of this questionnaire is two fold:
1. To discover which aspects of allergy you feel confident to manage and those with which you have difficulties.
2. To determine your educational needs, and how you would prefer to have those educational needs met.
