Undergraduate Allergy Training for Health Professionals Survey

People who are involved in the development and/or delivery of tertiary healthcare degrees in Australia are invited to complete a survey about allergy training. ASCIA is conducting this survey as part of the National Allergy Council Shared Care for Allergy Project.

The survey is available here from 17 October to 17 March 2024 and will take approximately 10 minutes to complete.

The purpose of this survey is to:
  • Find out what allergy training is currently being provided in tertiary healthcare degrees.
  • Collect information to make recommendations to government about including evidence-based, best-practice allergy education as part of education and training for all relevant health professionals entering the workforce in Australia.

Why is collecting this information important?

  • Allergy is a significant public health issue with over 4 million Australians living with allergies. 
  • We currently do not know what allergy training is being provided to students undertaking tertiary study in healthcare.
  • Your feedback will help ASCIA to improve allergy training in tertiary degrees for future health professionals by standardising  training for undergraduate health professionals, which will improve how people with allergic disease are managed in the community.

Participation in the survey is voluntary and your responses will be securely stored by Qualtrics and only accessed by approved employees of ASCIA. Any identifiable information received will not be stored with your responses. If you have any questions about the survey, please contact Emily Mamo (ASCIA Senior Project Officer) at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
