How to C.A.R.E. for Students with Food Allergies: What Educators Should Know is an interactive online course that provides an anytime, any place education solution for school personnel. Developed in partnership with leading organizations and critically evaluated by health professionals and educators, this innovative course is designed to help Boards of Education and school personnel prevent and manage emergency situations.

Our online course is based on current research evidence and expert consensus. In a research study of our program with over 70 school personnel it was proven to be highly effective, with large improvements in knowledge, skills and attitudes after using the course.

The elearning course is the result of a collaborative effort among the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN), the Food Allergy Initiative (FAI), Anaphylaxis Canada, the Canadian Society for Allergy and Clinical Immunology and Leap Learning Technologies.


A BIG thank you to everyone involved in bringing this into being! :banana :thumbsup :huggy :D

Canadian Anaphylaxis Readiness Education (CARE) ‐ Alberta Education and Anaphylaxis Canada collaborated to launch the Canadian Anaphylaxis Readiness Education (CARE) web‐based training program for schools across the province. The new interactive training program is designed to prepare educators to respond to an anaphylactic reaction in their schools and to provide access to important and easy‐to‐understand tips for keeping allergic students safe. The program was developed by Leap Learning Technologies Inc., Anaphylaxis Canada and the Canadian Society of Allergy and Clinical Immunology with support from the Government of Alberta and other key stakeholders including McMaster University and AllerGen NCE Inc.
Anaphylaxis is a severe and potentially life‐threatening allergic reaction. Food allergies are the most common cause, but insect stings, medication, latex and exercise (typically after eating a specific food) also can cause a reaction. It is important that staff in schools are trained to respond appropriately.
CARE incorporates graphics, audio and text and is accessible anytime, anywhere. The training program is available in English and French at the LearnAlberta.ca portal. Once logged into the LearnAlberta website, users can use the keyword Anaphylaxis to find the English version and the keyword Anaphylaxie to find the French version on LearnAlberta.ca. For assistance in setting up a teacher account or finding the resource, please contact LearnAlberta.Feedback@gov.ab.ca.
The CARE e‐module learning resource complements the Allergy and Anaphylaxis Informational Response (AAIR) resource that was introduced in all public, separate, charter, private and francophone schools in Alberta in 2008. The resource contains information about anaphylaxis and asthma, including educational CDs, posters, and training devices for the EpiPen® and Twinject® brands of epinephrine auto‐injectors available in Canada. AAIR resources can be located on the Alberta Education website at http://education.alberta.ca/admin/healt ... /aair.aspx.
