What can you do about anaphylaxis in school settings?

Over the last several years, there’s been increasing attention to the treatment of anaphylaxis in schools. Most states have laws governing the administration of an epinephrine auto-injector for when a student, who is allergic to foods or venoms, has an unexpected exposure to one of these allergens.  

The College put together a toolkit where you can find links to your state’s full law and information about liability. It also provides everything you need to write standing orders and prescriptions for undesignated epinephrine auto-injectors to schools. Many schools have difficulty obtaining these life-saving devices, so writing prescriptions and standing orders for schools could greatly help your community.
