Pediatr Allergy Immunol. 2021 Nov 22.  Online ahead of print.  Oral food challenges (OFCs) are the gold standard diagnostic test for food allergy. However, families face barriers to OFCs. Data on the Canadian caregiver perspective on OFCs are lacking. Therefore, our study aimed to assess perceptions of OFCs among Canadian parents of children with food allergy. We recruited parents of children with allergist-diagnosed food allergies from British Columbia (BC) and Ontario to participate in focus groups. Focus group questions were developed from literature reviews and expert opinions.  PMID:34811822 | DOI:10.1111/pai.13698
