FARE has released the new Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Emergency Care Plan, formerly the Food Allergy Action Plan. This written document outlines recommended treatment in case of an allergic reaction, signed by a child’s physician and includes emergency contact information. It should be on file for every student with food allergies.
The updated plan was revised by FARE’s new Education Working Group, a multidisciplinary group of food allergy experts that includes support group leaders, two members of FARE’s Medical Advisory Board, experienced parents of children with food allergies, an adult with food allergies, a dietitian, psychologist and a school nurse. The plan was approved by FARE’s Medical Advisory Board.
The document presents critical information including allergen(s), symptoms and treatment instructions in an easy-to-follow format—critical in an anaphylactic emergency.
