    Note: This is the current course for 2018 from 14 July

    This modular course has been developed by ASCIA in conjunction with the Department of Education and Training for all Victorian school staff. It has been updated in July 2018 to include new generic versions of ASCIA Action Plans for Anaphylaxis.  These plans have been developed for use with any brand of adrenaline (epinephrine) autoinjector available in Australia and New Zealand.  

    Release date: 14 July 2018 

    Note: You should now choose ASCIA anaphylaxis e-training VIC 6 to undertake a course.

    The course was created in June 2017 to incorporate updated ASCIA Action Plans and important changes to EpiPen® and EpiPen®Jr adrenaline (epinephrine) autoinjectors. The devices have not changed, just the instructions on the label:  
    - Reduced injection time from 10 to 3 seconds
    - Removal of the massage step after the injection

    EpiPens with a 10 second label can continue to be used and should not be replaced unless they have been used, are just about to expire or have expired.  

    All EpiPens should now be held in place for 3 seconds, regardless of the instructions on the label. However, if they are held for 10 seconds it will not affect the way that the adrenaline works.
