Article URL: Wilderness & Environmental Medicine Journal
Epinephrine, it’s one of outdoor education’s ‘unspoken secrets.’ Something you don't like to talk about outside your program, lest you raise red flags about how your program operates. And that applies both to programs that carry epinephrine, perhaps against state law, and programs that don’t carry epinephrine, perhaps against the best interest of their clients. Well, it’s time to bring this subject out into the open and talk about a serious medical, ethical and legal issue that impacts all outdoor programs. We'll explore the legal aspects of epinephrine use and an ethical model that supports using epinephrine. If you want more information about epinephrine and anaphylaxis we urge you to read this article and share it with others in your program.
