Who should take this course?
Any employee or manager working in an environment where an understanding of anaphylaxis and autoinjectors would be beneficial. This course can be used as a stand-alone module or included in an induction programme.
What does it cover?
Highfield’s Anaphylaxis and Autoinjector Short Course is designed to help you understand the risks of a severe allergic reaction and how to administer emergency treatment.
The course outlines how anaphylaxis can be caused by a broad range of ‘triggers’, such as insect stings, foods, for example, nuts and shellfish, latex and medicines, such as penicillin.
Learners will also learn how to recognise the symptoms and identify how to administer first aid to a casualty who is suffering from anaphylaxis.
The Anaphylaxis and Autoinjector eLearning Short Course covers key areas including:
- Reactions to allergens
- An employee’s responsibility
- Adrenaline autoinjectors
- Common traits

Learners simply log on to the Highfield Learner Management System (LMS) and work their way through the course, along with the scenarios that provide them with real-life context.
