Online Anaphylaxis Education at www.allergyaware.ca
Anaphylaxis Canada has raised funds to deliver free online food allergy and anaphylaxis education to Canadians. Our new online courses will provide 24/7 access to important information about preventing, recognizing and managing anaphylaxis, the most serious type of allergic reaction. Available in English and French, the courses can help prepare people for allergic emergencies in their communities.
The new online courses can help prevent anaphylactic reactions and deaths, and improve quality of life for children and adults with life-threatening allergies and their families. They can also significantly increase the number of Canadians who can help prevent and respond effectively to an allergic emergency.
Anytime, Anyplace Learning
The online courses are provided in a format which allows for self-paced learning and supports different learning styles. Course information is presented in plain language for better understanding and the easy-to-use tutorials can help to increase one’s knowledge, skills and confidence. Printable certificates of completion are offered at the end of each course. Individuals can also revisit selected course sections at their convenience.
Anaphylaxis Canada has drawn upon the success of past collaborations with the Canadian Society of Allergy and Clinical Immunology and software development company Leap Learning Technologies on the launch of an online course which received two national training awards. The content of the new courses are medically reviewed and based on the Canadian consensus document, Anaphylaxis in Schools & Other Settings.
Online learning has the potential for reaching a greater number of people in more efficient and effective ways. Ongoing anaphylaxis education can help to improve the quality of life for at-risk children and their families, reduce the number of emergency department visits, and increase the number of Canadians who can help prevent and respond to emergency situations.
