Health Professionals e-training

ASCIA e-training courses for health professionals have been developed by the Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy (ASCIA) to provide ready access to reliable health professional education throughout Australia and New Zealand at no charge. Development of these courses has included an extensive review and updating process involving ASCIA members and representatives from other relevant organisations.

Course information
  • To register, a username and password must be obtained from the login page of each course. 
  • Each course comprises modules presented via SCORMs which ideally should be completed in order. 
  • An evaluation is included at the end of each module, that allows you to monitor your understanding. 
  • The overall course assessments and certificates are provided in the final module of each course.

ASCIA Allergy and Anaphylaxis e-training for Health Professionals was approved as an Active Learning Module (ALM) by the RACGP QI&CPD Program (2014-2016) for 40 (Category 1) CPD points. ASCIA has re-applied for this course to be approved for the 2017-2018 triennium. However, as the RACGP requirements have changed, the course in its current format has not been approved for category 1 points, only category 2 points.  To be approved for category 1 points the course needs to be significantly amended and ASCIA is in the process of undertaking these amendments.

We apologise for any inconvenience that these changes have caused.
