In the Perioperative setting, latex allergy poses a risk to the health of both the patient and the healthcare worker.

The objective of this study day is to provide further insight to delegates on how to identify and reduce the risk of unwanted adverse events and provides strategies to create a safer environment.

This study day will provide delegates with a greater understanding of Type I Latex Allergy. Delegates will learn how to recognise Allergic Contact Dermatitis, common triggers and how to address these. Irritant Contact Dermatitis will also be explored so delegates are able to recognise and differentiate between immune response and non-immune response reactions.

Topics covered include:-

  • Latex allergy past present and future
  • Diagnosis and treatment of type I latex and type IV chemical allergies
  • Irritant contact dermatitis and hand care
  • Resuscitation guidance for anaphylaxis
