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 on https://mat-elearning.medhomeplus.org. You can take that course and then print out that certificate as long as you also hold one of the mentioned MAT Certificates.
