ASCIA anaphylaxis e-training for schools and early childhood education/care

ASCIA anaphylaxis e-training courses for Schools and ECEC (early childhood education/care) staff were first developed in 2010.  These courses are used throughout Australia and New Zealand, to provide a consistent approach to prevention, recognition and emergency treatment of anaphylaxis. They are world leading courses that are available open access and free of charge.

The course has been updated in July 2018 to include new generic versions of ASCIA Action Plans for Anaphylaxis. These plans have been developed for use with any brand of adrenaline (epinephrine) autoinjector available in Australia and New Zealand.

Autoinjector training devices

ASCIA anaphylaxis e-training courses should always be completed in conjunction with practice using adrenaline (epinephrine) autoinjector training devices.  As these deviced do not contain needles nor adrenaline they are re-usable.

To order autoinjector trainer devices contact a pharmacy or the device supplier (EpiPen: Mylan AU - phone 1800 931 625 or Mylan NZ - phone 0800 168 169) or Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia www.allergyfacts.org.au or Allergy New Zealand www.allergy.org.nz

The supervisor or other adult witness who signs the certificate to confirm practice with the trainer devices does not require any special qualifications.  They should however refer to instructions on the ASCIA Action Plans or the instructional videos that are available on the ASCIA website www.allergy.org.au/anaphylaxis 

Development and updating of ASCIA anaphylaxis e-training courses involves an extensive review process that has involved ASCIA members, 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.
