Oct. 21, 2014: New Anaphylaxis Toolkit Now Available to Emergency Departments
The Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) and the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) have partnered to create the new Anaphylaxis Toolkit, an educational resource to help improve emergency department discharge procedures for patients who have been treated for allergic reactions.
The toolkit aims to give ED staff a go-to resource to help patients know what steps to take after being discharged for treatment of an allergic reaction.
The free toolkit includes an Emergency Care Plan, an epinephrine auto-injector prescription reminder, a reminder to follow up with an allergist, tools for parents, teens and adults and a list of helpful resources.
The toolkit is available online and in print.
