Adrenaline (epinephrine) injector training devices

ASCIA anaphylaxis e-training courses should always be completed in conjunction with practice using adrenaline (epinephrine) injector training devices (EpiPen® and Anapen®), which do not have a needle and do not contain adrenaline.  To order trainer devices contact:

The supervisor or other adult witness (18 years or older) who signs the certificate to confirm practice with the adrenaline injector trainer devices does not require any special qualifications (except in Victorian state schools - see https://www.allergy.org.au/patients/anaphylaxis-e-training-schools-and-childcare#ad3).  They can refer to instructions on ASCIA Action Plans or videos on the ASCIA website www.allergy.org.au/anaphylaxis
