The MAP (Milk Allergy in Primary Care) Guideline for the diagnosis and management of cow’s milk allergy (CMA) in primary care is available as an online resource at: www.cowsmilkallergyguidelines.co.uk.
The MAP Guideline is the UK’s first, evidence-based management guideline specifically for CMA. Only 3% of GPs say they currently feel very confident in diagnosing the condition.
Dr Jo Walsh, a GP and member of the expert group that developed the MAP Guideline, said: “The MAP Guideline provides a practical approach to help in earlier recognition, in confirming diagnosis and in effectively managing infants with symptoms of cow’s milk allergy.”
