Course Overview

The ability of employees to facilitate the Immediate Management of Anaphylaxis is the first crucial step in ensuring an individual undergoing and allergic reaction get fast and prompt life saving treatment.

This Immediate Management of Anaphylaxis training course is designed for qualified first aiders, emergency first aiders and all healthcare professionals along with those in high-risk environments where medications are available/in-situ. This course teaches delegates to recognise and treat anaphylaxis promptly, safely, and effectively. It is particularly useful in many work and school environments as the rate of anaphylaxis is dramatically on the increase, and many will have staff members or students whom are at risk.

This is a specific first aid training course, allowing the administration of medication. Delegates by the end of the course will be able to immediately recognise and distinguish between a normal allergic reaction and a life-threatening anaphylactic reaction. Delegates will also be instructed on ascertaining whether the individual has had an anaphylactic response or allergic reaction to the medication in the past or prior to any administration.

Individuals will receive a level 3 (level 6 in Scotland) FAA RQF/SCQF certificate which is valid for three years. This course includes theory and practical training in safe, effective and immediate management of anaphylaxis; providing learners with the skills they require to provide prompt, safe and effective care for a casualty.

HSE highly recommends that any first aid trained person in any field requires annual refresher courses to maintain their competency. This cannot be understated for Anaphylaxis First Aid or Immediate Management of Oxygen Therapy.
