People with food allergies or who have children with food allergies – as well as those who are at risk for anaphylaxis from other causes – are invited to participate in an international research study led by Dr Susan Waserman at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, in collaboration with Food Allergy Canada and other leading clinicians and allergy organizations. More than 20 countries are participating in this initiative.
- improve the understanding of the availability of epinephrine auto-injectors
- review anaphylaxis emergency plans
- better understand the use of “stock epinephrine” (auto-injectors that are not prescribed for a particular person and can be used in anaphylactic emergencies)
The survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete and all data collected will remain anonymous. Please take this survey as soon as possible and share the link with others.

Your feedback is very much appreciated and will be invaluable in helping many people, including physicians, government officials and patient organizations like us to understand the use and availability of life-saving medicine for people with food allergies around the world.
