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.
The standard comes with management cards to be place on resuscitation trolleys and in treatment areas.
This standard should be used in conjunction with online education and on site training.
