The College's care pathway for eczema is presented in two parts:
1. an algorithm with the stages of ideal care, and
2. a set of competences required to diagnose, treat and optimally manage eczema.
The RCPCH recommends that this pathway is implemented locally by a multidisciplinary team with a focus on creating networks between staff in primary and community healthcare, social care, education and hospital-based practice to improve services for children with allergic conditions. All specialists should have paediatric training.
