This 1-hour eCME program supports primary care professionals in identifying and managing cow’s milk protein allergy (CMPA) in infants. Practitioners will be able to make expedient assessments and effective decisions to help parents seeking help for infants in distress. The program explores current opportunities in the primary care management of CMPA, including the role of hypoallergenic formulas and probiotics, and the potential for hastening tolerance to cow’s milk protein to allow for earlier integration of dairy product ingredients into the diet and for improved quality of life.


This program has received an unrestricted educational grant or in-kind support from Mead Johnson Nutrition Canada.

This Self-Learning program has been certified by the College of Family Physicians of Canada for up to 1 Mainpro+ Credit.
