Why does allergy education matter for patients?

Jo Keeling has multiple severe allergies and has experienced anaphylaxis a number of times:

“It is so important to me as a patient, that we receive good clinical care in terms of quick access to an Allergist to provide a diagnosis. However, alongside this, support is critical so that we patients are not simply diagnosed and then left to manage the condition on our own. Allergies are manageable but life changing to many.  As a newly diagnosed patient, I suffered further anaphylaxis due to my inexperience and lack of knowledge.”
