Penicillin capsules

Penicillin allergy is the most common drug allergy and is self-reported in up to 18 percent of hospitalised patients. However, most (up to 90%) of patients with a penicillin allergy label are found not to be allergic on further assessment. Importantly, in the true allergic patients, penicillin allergy can be life-threatening.

This course covers key questions about patients who have a history of penicillin allergy.
