Course Description:

Allergy to latex was first recognized in the late 1970s. Since then, it has become a major health concern as an increased number of people in the workplace are affected.

It is estimated that 8-12 percent of healthcare workers are latex sensitive, with reactions ranging from irritant contact dermatitis to immediate, possibly life-threatening, sensitivity. This course informs healthcare workers about products and practices that can trigger a latex allergy and how to lessen the chance of an allergic reaction.
