The course outlines how anaphylaxis can be caused by a broad range of ‘triggers’, such as insect stings, foods, for example nuts and shellfish, latex and medicines, such as penicillin.
Learners will also learn how to recognise the symptoms and identify how to administer first aid to a casualty who is suffering from anaphylaxis.
The course is ideal for any employee or manager working in an environment where an understanding of anaphylaxis and autoinjectors would be beneficial. This course can be used as a stand-alone module or included in an induction programme.
