Chronic health conditions at school

Managing-Chronic-Health-Conditons-at-School-page-001Last September, the Diabetes Federation of Ireland partnered with other chronic disease organizations, namely the Asthma Society of Ireland, Brainwave -The Irish Epilepsy Association- and Anaphylaxis Ireland to publish a Resource Pack to help teachers and parents manage students with any of these conditions in school.

Called "Managing Chronic Health Conditions at School", the comprehensive resource pack was developed to support and enable teachers and parents to provide a safe environment for students with a chronic condition as they go through school.

Contents include:

  • Guidance on developing or updating your school’s ‘Managing Chronic Health Conditions’ guidelines
  • A standardised Healthcare Plan, template forms and letters that can be adapted to meet your school’s information need to ensure the safety of students with a chronic condition
  • An Emergency Plan for each condition and Actions for the Board of Management, Teachers and Parents to manage each condition in school
  • Practical information on each condition for teachers
