More about this course

 

When administering a medication, it is important to recognise and differentiate between allergic reactions and the potentially life-threatening anaphylactic reactions immediately.

It is also essential to determine whether the individual has had an allergic or anaphylactic response to the medication in the past or prior to administration.

This course is suitable for all First Aiders and healthcare professionals, as well as those in a high-risk environment where such medication is available.

The course is made up of practical and theoretical sessions delivered by your Instructor who will provide a detailed course programme.

Each learner receives a training pack including resources and ideas to help them practice the skills covered. Depending on the course the pack will have different content specific to the type of course attended.

Each course meets the requirements outlined in the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981. The HSE requires a set amount of contact hours that differs for each course.
