Anaphylaxis

The Student Health Care policy requires schools to implement a whole school approach to anaphylaxis management.

Anaphylaxis online professional learning course

The Department's online anaphylaxis professional learning course has been replaced by a new course developed for Western Australian schools by the Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy (ASCIA).

Benefits of the new course

  • Consistency in the management of anaphylaxis through an evidence based resource for education staff, child care staff and community health practitioners.
  • Core modules used nationally will provide consistency in anaphylaxis management with other Australian states while an additional WA module has been customised to local legislative and regulatory requirements.
  • Peak body representation of best practice is assured through regular course updates by ASCIA.

School level reporting

Currently, principals can run a report to determine who has completed the Department’s anaphylaxis course.  When the existing course is unpublished at the end of Term 1, 2017 no mechanism will be available for principals to run school level reports to determine who has completed training.  It is recommended that principals run a school level report to identify staff who have completed the existing course.

Assistance available from ASCIA

  • Assistance is available from ASCIA if help is needed to access the course by emailing: webmaster@allergy.org.au
  • The Department's Help Desk does not provide support for external courses.
