ASCIA anaphylaxis e-training for schools and childcare

ASCIA anaphylaxis e-training schools and childcare
Course entry click here

ASCIA anaphylaxis e-training for schools and childcare provides access to accurate and consistent anaphylaxis education throughout Australia and New Zealand, at no charge.

More than 170,000 school and childcare staff have registered for these courses since they were first released in March 2010.

The childcare version is approved by the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA) for the purposes of the Education and Care Services National Law, and published in accordance with regulation 137(1)(e) of the Education and Care Services Regulations.

An information leaflet and slide set have been developed by ASCIA and Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia to assist schools in educating students about severe allergies (anaphylaxis). This information should not be considered appropriate anaphylaxis training for school staff, who should contact the relevant department in their region to ensure they complete anaphylaxis training that meets the requirements for their region.

ASCIA anaphylaxis e-training courses should always be completed in conjunction with practice using adrenaline autoinjector training devices (with no needle and no adrenaline).

To order adrenaline autoinjector trainer devices contact your national patient support organisation:

The supervisor or other adult witness (no special qualifications are required) who signs the certificate to confirm practice with the  trainer devices should refer to instructions on the ASCIA Action Plans or the instructional videos that are available on the ASCIA website:
www.allergy.org.au/health-professionals/anaphylaxis-resources

Development of ASCIA anaphylaxis e-training for schools and childcare services included an extensive review process that involved ASCIA members, NSW, QLD and WA state governments, patient support organisations and representatives from schools, childcare services, education and health departments throughout Australasia. 

ASCIA retains copyright and control of all ASCIA e-training courses and content is regularly reviewed and updated when evidence based changes occur in the medical literature.
