Stocking Epinephrine: Ensuring Access to Anaphylaxis Treatment and Better Training for Educators

This webinar is now on-demand! Watch the full event here.

According to a recent Mylan survey, of the 919 reported cases of anaphylaxis in schools, more than one in five occurred in students without an established or known allergic trigger. The only treatment for anaphylaxis is epinephrine.

Currently, nine states have laws requiring schools to stock epinephrine, but 38 states have passed enabling legislation to allow schools to stock epinephrine. State boards of education and other state policymakers have an opportunity to move schools toward actual quality implementation of stock epinephrine laws.

Join NASBE on September 10, from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. (EDT) for a webinar discussion with Shirley Schantz, director of nursing education at the National Association of School Nurses and Karen S. Schwind from New Braunfels Independent School District in Texas about epinephrine access, and the important role school nurses play in managing food allergies and treatment in school settings. Schantz will introduce NASN’s new training toolkit and highlight effective strategies to stock epinephrine.
