AllerGen provided research and evaluation support to the development of this learning module, the latest addition to a suite of online educational resources delivered through the “Allergy Aware” portal.

“We are excited to share this resource with the wider community, with a view to reaching more Canadians who can help respond in emergency situations,” said Laurie Harada, the organization’s Executive Director. “Knowledge about anaphylaxis management will help people minimize the potential for allergic reactions and respond appropriately with treatment.”
