Our Anaphylaxis Clinical Care Standard applies to how you manage anaphylaxis in adults presenting to your emergency department, or who are experiencing anaphylaxis as an inpatient or outpatient in the health service.

It will help you better recognise, respond to and manage patients with anaphylaxis, and aims to bring a consistent approach to patient management across the state.
