In this webinar, Briony Tyquin will cover all the basics and discuss how we can help protect children in our care with allergies.
What are Allergies and Anaphylaxis? How are they diagnosed and what do you do if a child presents to your care with life-threatening allergies? How do we manage this in a hospital/ clinic environment to minimise the risk of an allergic reaction?
Have you ever cared for a child who has experienced allergies and anaphylaxis? Did you feel confident that you understood how to keep them safe in the hospital environment as well as offer information to the family that was useful for them?
In this video lesson, you will:
- Gain an understanding of IgE mediated allergic reactions.
- Acquire knowledge about the signs and symptoms of an IgE medicated allergic reaction.
- Receive information regarding how to minimise the risk for the child at risk of anaphylaxis.
- Gain an awareness of the utilisation of an ASCIA action plan for the treatment of an allergic reaction/anaphylaxis
