Health Support Planning

The Health Support Plan is the documented outcome of the collaborative planning process to determine the level of support required for a student with specific health conditions. The plan identifies the necessary adjustments including resources and staff training around procedures for students with personal care needs and medical conditions such as asthma, diabetes, epilepsy and anaphylaxis (refer to information below about anaphylaxis).
