Epinephrine Fear

Some are also think that the needle is long, wide and painful. Some are not sure about their role in their school and who’s responsibility it should be.



Debunk myths that get in the way of appropriately managing allergic reactions and anaphylaxis. Re-educate staff with at least annual in-services as well as refreshers that include use of training devices.
