In 1999 ASCIA first developed a range of web based education resources as a service for patients and consumers that provided accessible, accurate, consistent and current information, at no charge.
This was closely followed by the development of several position statements, guidelines and action plans for ASCIA members and other health professionals to access.
In 2009, ASCIA embarked on developing web based e-training courses, in response to a growing need for accessible, accurate and consistent education, particularly in the area of anaphylaxis. Since ASCIA anaphylaxis e-training for schools and childcare was released in March 2010 there have been more than 100,000 registrations for these courses.
In 2013, to meet the challenge of increasing demand for education, ASCIA now has a large range of web based educational resources that are all available at no charge on the ASCIA website (www.allergy.org.au)
