Foundation School Bulletin

The Shaping Allergy Training in the UK Foundation Programme Project

Foundation doctors in England are invited to complete this 10-minute survey which aims to evaluate the perception of current allergy education provided to UKFP doctors. The project is run by the British Allergy Education Network (BAEN), a working party representing the British Society of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (BSACI). This research has been approved by the NHS England (formerly Health Education England) research governance team. BAEN's mission is to improve healthcare professionals’ understanding of allergic diseases. There is no published data on the views of Foundation doctors on this important topic and they are keen to know your opinions. 

Please take 10 minutes to complete the survey. BAEN will use this vital data to inform how they can deliver effective Allergy education for Foundation doctors, practically focussed and clinically relevant to your practice.
