ASCIA website information

Overview

To meet the challenge of increasing demand for high quality education and training in the areas of allergy and clinical immunology, ASCIA has developed a range or online resources and e-training courses that are available at no charge on the ASCIA website. These include:

Most ASCIA resources are open access, meaning that anyone can access them, and either print them off and/or link to the webpage.  A limited number of resources are only available to ASCIA members, such as food allergen challenge and allergen immunotherapy protocols.

Policy

ASCIA resources are developed and peer reviewed by ASCIA members and based on expert opinion and the available published literature at the time of review. Information contained in ASCIA resources is not intended to replace medical advice and any questions regarding a medical diagnosis or treatment should be directed to a medical practitioner.

Development of the content of ASCIA resources is not influenced by commercial organisations. Hence there are no conflicts of interest regarding the sources of funding and the editorial content of the website.

Support for specific projects (such as ASCIA e-training courses) from unrestricted educational grants is clearly identified, including the identities of commercial and non-commercial organisations that have contributed funding, services or material for the relevant webpages.

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:

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.
