Symptom classification exposed: does it measure up?

    Research output: Other contribution to conferencePresentation onlypeer-review


    Managing food allergy requires vigilance, yet mistakes can occur. To appreciate if symptom severity is understood - teenagers, parents and the general public were asked to classify 4 symptoms - mild / moderate or severe. This was measured against how 15 allergy specialists would classify the same symptoms. Hypothesis is that if living with food allergy, participants would be able to correctly identify severity (as food allergy can be life threatening). Results show that this is not the case.
