[b]"Anaphylaxis: A Handbook for School Boards"[/b] is published by the Canadian School Boards Association (sponsored in part by Health Canada). This guide for drafting Anaphylaxis policies can be downloaded for free at [url="http://www.cdnsba.org/"]http://www.cdnsba.org/[/url]

It's a large file for download time may be long. A great resource.

Hi,
I do have a copy of the Handbook for School Boards put out by the Canadian School Boards Association, but it was written in 1996. Does anyone know if there is an updated version, or are they still selling the original version?

I'm printing this out right now for my son's new teacher, and it says it was revised in 2001. Hope that helps.

Thanks, teacher [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] I have downloaded it, and will check it later against the one I have to see what the changes are - my son's school counsellor has it at the moment in preparation for the first staff meeting of the new school year.

Does a "handbook" carry the same weight as a "law" (for instance)? Are certain persons obligated to follow advice or recommendations contained therein?
Anyone?

No, MommaBear, the handbook does not carry the same weight as a law. From my understanding, the Handbook on Anaphylaxis, put out by the Canadian School Board Association, is simply a guideline for all schools in Canada. I live in British Columbia, Canada, and have found all my son's teachers and principals eager to learn about anaphylaxis and how to keep the anaphylactic child safe. We have been dealing with schools for the last twelve years, and attitudes have come a long way since we started. Not perfect, but improving all the time [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

arachide, thank-you for posting the link. I have been using it all week. Here's my computer-dumb question. Can I download this to my computer? I downloaded the file the other day and then couldn't figure out how to download a copy to my computer so I could read all 74 pages off-line rather than staying on-line. So, now I'm back there again downloading it and prepared to stay on-line until I can read all 74 pages, which is problematic because I have dial-up and it ties up the phone.
Any suggestions from someone who is not a total computer idiot?
Many thanks and best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Guess it's time for me to return from summer haitus... Hi everybody.
Cindy, there shouldn't be a problem downloading the file to your computer. I have a copy on mine. I have dial-up too and it took a good 10 minutes to load. The only problem is that you cannot print it. If you want a hard copy version, you'll have to order it ($15 CDN).
I actually ordered a copy for my school allergy committee. It arrived within a week of placing the order.
Great document!
