The penicillin toolkit has been created for you, the ACAAI member, because you know the facts about penicillin allergy, and have information your patients and primary care physicians may not have. You have the ability to raise awareness about how common it is for people to believe they are penicillin-allergic, although they have never been tested.

The elements of the toolkit will help you in all facets of penicillin allergy testing, from listing the supplies needed and costs of penicillin toolkits, to providing template materials for you to promote the idea of testing to patients and the media.

The following toolkit materials can be used for your community outreach efforts. 

When you click on an item, it will automatically download to your computer.
