Updated 2020 versions of ASCIA Action Plans are now available

30 January 2020

ASCIA Action Plans for Anaphylaxis (RED) and ASCIA Action Plan for Allergic Reactions (GREEN) ASCIA Action Plans for Anaphylaxis (RED) and ASCIA Action Plan for Allergic Reactions (GREEN) have been updated in January 2020 and are available at www.allergy.org.au/hp/anaphylaxis/ascia-action-plan-for-anaphylaxis

Whilst the 2020 ASCIA Action Plans are the latest versions, the 2018 and 2017 versions of ASCIA Action Plans are still valid for use throughout 2020 and 2021, or until the due date for review stated on the plan. 

ASCIA anaphylaxis e-training courses for schools, early childhood education/care and community have also been updated in January 2020, to include the following changes that have been made to ASCIA Action Plans: 

  • The weight range for adrenaline autoinjectors (150 mcg) has changed from 10-20kg to 7.5-20kg, to be consistent with ASCIA Guidelines and consensus expert opinion.
  • The section for the doctor or nurse practitioner to complete In the RED and GREEN plans is more detailed and clearer, with dot points about medications and the review date.
  • The ORANGE plan (used mostly as a poster) has a new title “ASCIA First Aid Plan for Anaphylaxis” is available at www.allergy.org.au/hp/anaphylaxis/ascia-action-plan-for-anaphylaxis and translated versions are available at www.allergy.org.au/hp/anaphylaxis#ta5  .

The 2020 versions of ASCIA Action Plans will also be included in the updated ASCIA anaphylaxis e-training course for health professionals, which we expect will be finalised by early March 2020.
