Abstract

Background. Inadequate practices in diagnosis and management of anaphylaxis in parallel with an increase in its prevalence may cause serious public health problems today. This is the first study aiming to assess the theoretical knowledge of professional and non-professional healthcare workers from different lines of the healthcare service chain about anaphylaxis management, and their practice approaches for epinephrine autoinjectors (EAIs) together.
