Anaphylaxis First Aid (EpiPen/AAI training)

EpiPen training

If someone collapses from an allergic reaction and is not treated immediately it can be life threatening. Plus as the list of substances people are allergic to grows ever longer the chances of allergic reactions increases. Having appropriate training for what to do in an emergency situation becomes vitally important. An EpiPen, or auto injector, is easy to use and saves lives.  Join us on an EpiPen training course to find out more.

The training course

Firstly this 3 hour EpiPen training course is designed for teachers, group leaders, carers or anyone else who needs training in how, and when, to use an adrenaline auto injector (AAI).

Secondly workplace first aiders who have to deal with individuals who are prone to anaphylaxis should also attend.

Thirdly with over 40% of children now suffering from allergies, the ability to understand allergic conditions, and deal with sudden or severe symptoms is fast becoming an essential part of childcare.

Additionally from October 2017 it is possible for educational settings to hold an emergency adrenaline auto injector. This would be for allergy emergencies on their site. See review document. Hence children who have a severe allergic reaction and are away from their own medicine, can be treated by the staff at the school. This applies across the UK, apart from Scotland.

In partnership with the First Aid Training Co-operative we can deliver EpiPen training as part of our other first aid courses.

Trainers can come to your venue to deliver this EpiPen course. Thereby giving the advantage that staff do not have to go away from site to be trained in adrenaline auto injector use.
