Emergency Medication Training

EpiPens, Diastat, Glucagon and Rescue Inhalers are used for medical emergencies. Each student who has one of these medications ordered has a health plan which describes when to use it. Refer to their Individual Health Plan under the IHP tab in Skyward or speak to a district nurse.

If you have a student who has been prescribed one of these medications, per their health plan, do the following:
1. Watch the DPI video
2. Print out and take the Quiz
3. Give the quiz to the nurse of your building and schedule a time to do hands-on training with her.
4. Attend a hands-on session.

The video (knowledge) portion needs to be viewed at least once every four years. The hands-on training should be reviewed yearly.
