ASCIA website information

Overview

To meet the challenge of increasing demand for high quality education and training in the areas of allergy and clinical immunology, ASCIA has developed a range or resources that are available at no charge on the ASCIA website. These include:

  • e-training courses for health professionals, schools and childcare staff and first aid (community)
  • anaphylaxis resources, including ASCIA action plans, FAQ and guidelines
  • information on allergy, immunodeficiency and other immune disorders for health professionals, patients, school and childcare staff and the community.
Policy

ASCIA does not allow its educational resources to be uploaded onto other websites unless a licencing agreement has been approved.

However, ASCIA provides permission for appropriate organisations to:

  • Link to ASCIA webpages to access ASCIA educational resources; and/or
  • Quote directly from ASCIA webpages, with acknowledgement of the source.

For example, other organisations are welcome to link to the following popular ASCIA webpages:

ASCIA resources are regularly updated, based on changes in the medical literature and expert reviews. By linking to the ASCIA webpages (and not directly to the PDFs) it ensures that only current versions are accessed.

ASCIA website information is not intended to replace medical advice and any questions regarding a medical diagnosis or treatment should be directed to a medical practitioner.

Development and Review Process

ASCIA website information is:

  • Developed by ASCIA committees or working parties, then peer reviewed by the ASCIA membership.
  • Based on expert opinion and the available published medical literature at the time of review.
  • Developed without any funding from commercial sources and is not influenced by commercial organisations.
  • Regularly reviewed by ASCIA and updated where necessary, to ensure the content is consistent with current published medical literature.
Objectives

The objectives of ASCIA information for patients, consumers and carers are to:

  • Create greater awareness and understanding of allergy, asthma and other immune diseases: their impact, and appropriate (medically and scientifically proven) management options.
  • Help people recognise the symptoms of allergy, asthma and other immune diseases.
  • Inform people of medically and scientifically proven methods for assessment, treatment and prevention.
  • Improve the quality of life for people with allergy, asthma or other immune diseases.
  • Assist patients, carers and their doctors to make informed choices about management of immune disorders.

The ASCIA website is organised to allow easy access to the extensive range of ASCIA resources from desk top computer, a tablet/iPad or smart phone using a responsive template that adapts automatically to the device being used.
