Updated ASCIA anaphylaxis e-training courses

20 February 2020

All versions of ASCIA anaphylaxis e-training courses have been updated in 2020 to include recent changes to ASCIA Action Plans and Guidelines.  These courses are available at:

ASCIA anaphylaxis e-training courses continue to lead the world in providing accessible, consistent and evidence-based training for schools, early childhood education/care (ECEC), health professionals, first aid providers, patients, consumers and carers. More than 100,000 people were trained in the past year using ASCIA anaphylaxis e-training courses and more than 20,000 people have already registered over the past month for ASCIA anaphylaxis e-training courses for schools, ECEC and community.

All ASCIA anaphylaxis e-training courses now include the following changes to ASCIA Action Plans and Guidelines:

  • 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.
  • The ORANGE plan (used mostly as a poster) has a new title “ASCIA First Aid Plan for Anaphylaxis” and translated versions of this plan are available on the ASCIA website.

ASCIA recently lodged a pre-budget submission to support expansion and further development of ASCIA allergy and anaphylaxis online educational resources and e-training courses, through a request for funding for three years (2020-2023) from the federal government in the 2020-2021 budget. The funding would also enable ASCIA to continue providing ASCIA anaphylaxis e-training courses free of charge. This submission is available on the ASCIA website www.allergy.org.au/about-ascia/ascia-initiatives#collab
