ASCIA Online Resources and Courses

ASCIA is the peak professional body of clinical immunology/allergy specialists in Australia and New Zealand. To meet the challenge of increasing demand for high quality education and training, ASCIA has developed a comprehensive range of world leading online resources and courses that are accessible, consistent and evidence-based.

There are more than 330 resources on the ASCIA website, including:

Most ASCIA resources and courses are available open access from the ASCIA website www.allergy.org.au 

A limited number of resources are only available to ASCIA members, such as food allergen challenge and allergen immunotherapy protocols. 

The content of all ASCIA resources and courses is subject to copyright. However, ASCIA resources can be printed off the website, linked to or photocopied without infringement of the copyright.  

ASCIA does not provide the content of its e-training courses as this breaches ASCIA's document control and intellectual property (IP) policy. This policy is in place to prevent ASCIA IP from being copied and used for commercial purposes, and also ensures that outdated copies of content are not in circulation.

Linking to ASCIA Online Resources and Courses

ASCIA does not allow its educational resources to be rebranded or 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, some organisations 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 does not supply its resources in RTF format.

ASCIA resources and courses are developed, reviewed or updated in response to: 

  • Requests from ASCIA members, other health professionals or patient support organisations.
  • Changes in product availability

The process involves the following steps:

  • The ASCIA team (including medical writers and editors) work closely with the Chairs of ASCIA committees and working parties to develop, review and update ASCIA online resources. 
  • The draft new or updated resources and courses are peer reviewed by relevant ASCIA committees and working parties.
  • Once finalised they are uploaded to the ASCIA website.
  • Regular reviews are undertaken by ASCIA and updated as required.

ASCIA educational resources and training courses are based on published literature and expert review, however, they are not intended to replace medical advice. The content of ASCIA resources is not influenced by any commercial organisations. Hence there are no conflicts of interest regarding the sources of funding and the editorial content of the website.
