About this Course

This course is designed to help you understand the risk of Anaphylaxis, recognise symptoms and administer first aid in the case of a severe allergic reaction. You will also learn the proper use of autoinjectors.

Over 20% of the population in the UK suffers from some form of allergic disorder. A severe allergic reaction can be potentially life-threatening. It involves a rapid development of breathing and circulation complications. When the body swells in response to an allergen, the airway tightens, which leads to fainting or a sudden drop in blood pressure.

Anaphylaxis can be caused by a range of triggers including insect bites, certain types of food, latex and some medicines. Autoinjectors can quickly relieve the symptoms of an anaphylaxis reaction, providing enough time for emergency services to arrive and take over the treatment. It is essential that anyone in a caretaking role, including health and social care workers, know how to identify and treat the symptoms of anaphylaxis.

This online short course can be completed in just 30 minutes, but it can potentially save a life. It is suitable for employees working in an environment where an understanding of anaphylaxis is beneficial. This includes NHS medical and nursing staff, allied health professions (AHPs) and care staff, locum doctors and nurses, locum AHPs, agency nurses and workers, healthcare assistants, support workers, care assistants and community services. It can be used as a stand-alone module or as part of an induction course.

Did you know: In 2014, the UK’s Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) advised that anyone who is at risk of suffering anaphylaxis should always have at least two adrenaline auto-injector devices immediately available.
