Q: I take yearly trips into backcountry areas with three other people. I have my Wilderness First Responder certification through WMA. What is the best way to approach my doctor to obtain a prescription for epinephrine to include in our group kit? While none of us has had allergic reactions in the past, assistance is generally hours away.
A: Be direct and honest. Outline your training and your intentions. If your doctor has any questions direct her/him to the resources section our website for the Wilderness Medicine Field Protocols.
