The update includes the following new and updated webpages, to make information easier to find, and improve the user experience:
- ASCIA website homepage - This webpage has been streamlined to feature quick links to the most frequently requested information, including How to Locate a Specialist, ASCIA Action Plans, ASCIA e-training courses and ASCIA anaphylaxis translations.

- ASCIA immunodeficiency resources for health professionals - Reordered under new headings (PID, IRT, SCIg, HAE) to make it easier to find information.
- ASCIA anaphylaxis resources for health professionals - Now easier to find as the length of this webpage has been reduced.
- ASCIA food allergy resources for health professionals - Reordered under new headings to make it easier to find information.

Why do we need to continue updating and improving the ASCIA website?
- The ASCIA website is a world leading source of accessible, consistent and evidence-based information about allergy and immunodeficiency.
- The ASCIA website continues to attract a large number of users, with more than 3.2 million pageviews, 2.1 million visits and 1.7 million unique visitors in the past year.
- The ASCIA website is regarded as one of the main ASCIA member services (including information for their patients and carers), and sources of continuing professional development.
It is therefore important that we keep reviewing ASCIA website resources and the way that they are accessed, to inform future updates and improvements. The ASCIA website includes information about the development and review process of ASCIA online resources and courses.
