Tick not appearing after end of sections

Tick ✔️ not appearing after end of course section question has been answered correctly for each section of the “Children with allergies and anaphylaxis course” and next button activated. ….BUT this is not the case for the “The Child” This was incredibly annoying. The help request was answered promptly however and the problem resolved but considerable time was wasted and I am not sure if the software will still repeat the error, has been repaired or was solved with an over-ride by the iHasco help desk staff. I have my certificate however.

Very long

No summary provided

3/5
Some misleading data in the test

A lot of complicated information for a general audience, although it is presented well.Your quoted survey statistic that 50% of children have an allergy includes even very mild hayfever symptoms and this means that there will be an inappropriate focus on mild symptoms, versus anaphylaxis.The statement that allergies can't be cured is also misleading - children can and do grow out of allergies (particularly milk, fish and shellfish).

3/5
be more concise-prefer text to video

I’d prefer a written text I could keep and refer to. Video is not as clear or concise, too much unnecessary content, but presenter dull, so would much rather have a written presentation, which could be downloaded and kept for future reference

3/5
Too long

I don’t think the test question of how many children have an allergy is useful. How is that knowledge going to help when someone is having an anaphylactic reaction?!

3/5
Unnecessarily long winded

Useful information, but far too much irrelevant waffle. A little repetitive.

3/5
Content good.Test questions questionable

Overall the course is informative. However, one of the test questions was, "What are the two most common causes of allergic reactions?" And the "correct" answer was "Food and insect bites/stings." This is confusing as the NHS website lists tree and grass pollen, dust mites, food, pollen, medicine, insect stings as the common causes of allergens. Therefore, ALL three of the multi-choice answers were all correct!

3/5
Good for covering the basics

As someone who has completed a paediatric first aid course, this felt quite repetitive as it did not tell me anything I didn't already know and was at times contradicted the training I had recently received - particularly regarding rescue breaths since covid.If I was someone who didn't already have a lot of background knowledge in this area, I would have found it a lot more useful.

3/5
Concerned about slide 23

Slide 23 suggests that once the AAI has been delivered and a call made to ambulance control an antihistamine could be given, this could mean that the casualty is moved out of a lying down position into an upright position in order to swallow. In all my previous training I have been told to keep the casualty still and not move into an upright position this is because on some post mortem examinations it had been noted that on moving the casualty before the paramedic has arrived can result in a cardiac arrest due to empty ventricle syndrome. In my own delivery of training to staff I always say not to move till assessed by and care taken over by the paramedic.

to much long a course

the course was ok, but the information at the end was far to long.
