QNUK Level 3 Award in Responding to Anaphylactic Reactions

The QNUK Level 3 Award in Responding to Anaphylactic Reactions Course is for those that require additional training in basic life support and management of anaphylaxis. Many attendees are those working in environments that support children that may be at risk of severe allergic reactions, for example those working in nurseries and other early years settings. The qualification has also been designed as the perfect add-on to standard first aid courses such as the QNUK Level 3 Award in Paediatric First Aid.

Who is the Course For?

Anyone who may have to respond to an anaphylactic reaction

Syllabus

  • Assess an incident
  • CPR
  • Recovery position
  • Common triggers for anaphylaxis
  • Minimising the risk of allergic reactions
  • Recognising suspected anaphylaxis
  • Administering first aid to someone suffering anaphylaxis
  • Using autoinjectors

Prerequisites

This qualification is aimed at those over 16 who are able to undertake the responsibilities associated with administering an adrenaline auto injector.

Learners between 14-16 years can undertake the course, however they should not be relied upon by employers to be a sole first aider.

It is recommended that candidates have a minimum of Level 2 literacy and numeracy or equivalent.

Learners are required to demonstrate first aid procedures as they would in a real work environment. This includes providing CPR to a casualty who is on the floor, therefore learners must be physically capable of doing this.
