Emergency Medication Administration:

The EMAT course trains providers in licensed or regulated child day programs and in private schools accredited by the Virginia Council for Private Education who do not ordinarily administer medications but who supervise children who might need either an emergency injection of epinephrine using an auto-injector device (EpiPen®) and/or need Benadryl and inhalers to children in their setting. The EMAT must be taught by an approved MAT Trainer.There is no graded written test but you will be tested on performing a skills demo on giving an epi pen and giving oral benadryl either by medicine cup, syringe or dosing spoon.

This class is scheduled only for groups of 12-16 via an appointment. Regarding MAT requirements for training for providers who need to administer epinephrine auto-injectors other than EpiPen: Providers are permitted to administer any epinephrine auto-injector if they hold a valid MAT, MAT Renewal, EMAT, or EpiPen Certificate, after they also receive child-specific training in the specific auto-injector that they will be administering to that child. This additional training can be any training that the parents and the child’s healthcare provider agree is sufficient to prepare the provider to safely administer that auto-injector to that child. Examples can include product videos or a demonstration by the parent or healthcare provider. It is not the role of the MAT Program to determine whether this additional child-specific training is sufficient – this is determined by the parent and the child’s healthcare provider. Show proof of this training by using the Special Health Care Needs form describing what training was provided. Auvi Q online class will be provided online again Oct. 31, 2017 on https://mat-elearning.medhomeplus.org. You can take that course and then print out that certificate as long as you also hold an EMAT/EPI-PEN/MATIS or MAT RENEWAL Certificate.
