Immunology & Infectious Disease

The immunology module presents a range of information relevant to the practice of sport and exercise medicine. From the factors associated with training induced immunosuppression, and infections contracted whilst travelling, this module explores infectious diseases such as Hepatitis A,B and C, HIV, and EBV. Other conditions such as Rhinitis, urticaria and sexually transmitted diseases are also discussed. The module closes with a number of case histories for the learner to complete.

Note: This module does not contain information about SARS-Cov-2, or the 2019 novel Coronavirus, including information about the Covid-19 infection, its presentation, investigation or management in athletes. ACSEP will endeavour to develop important information on this area in the future.
