Allergy and Anaphylaxis Awareness (10710NAT)
Anaphylaxis is a severe allergic reaction that can be fatal. Staff in Early Childhood Services need to know how to manage, recognise and treat anaphylaxis, which can develop very quickly, requiring swift action.
Allergy and Anaphylaxis Awareness (10710NAT) is a nationally accredited course designed to raise awareness of allergy and anaphylaxis in the community. This course provides knowledge on the recognition and management of an allergic/anaphylactic reaction and assisting a person experiencing a severe allergic reaction by providing emergency first aid using an adrenaline autoinjector device. In addition to this, participants will learn how to identify allergen risks and develop risk minimisation plans for people where a duty of care is present. This course has been approved by ACECQA as meeting the requirements for anaphylaxis management training in the National Regulations for Early Childhood Education and Care. Training is delivered in partnership and under the auspice of Asthma Foundation of Victoria RTO 4987.
