AllergyWise health care professionals version – RCN accredited: six study hours
This AllergyWise online anaphylaxis training enables users to improve their knowledge through self-directed study, wherever and whenever it suits them, within their two-month licence period.
The first part of the course emphasises the key messages of how to recognise the symptoms of a severe allergic reaction and how to avoid allergen exposure. It also gives comprehensive advice on what to do if a reaction does occur. The second part of the course provides health care trainers with help and advice on how to run their own anaphylaxis training in schools and early years’ settings.
In addition to the online course, students on the AllergyWise health care professionals programme will receive a printed resource pack which includes a PowerPoint presentation, speaker notes, handouts and trainer pens.
The AllergyWise online course includes some module quizzes and assessments and an RCN certificate will be issued to those who complete the course satisfactorily.
The AllergyWise training programme has been written by Sue Clarke, Nurse Adviser to The Anaphylaxis Campaign, who developed the original AllergyWise school nurse training programme. The online AllergyWise anaphylaxis training is also recommended as a refresher for those who have previously undertaken anaphylaxis training.
After completing this course you will have:
- improved and updated your knowledge in managing severe allergies in schools and early years settings
- enhanced your skills in training others in the use of adrenaline injectors
- developed a greater understanding of severe allergies, that can be used to reduce anxiety among school or nursery staff, parents, carers and pupils.
