The National Allergy Council remains a partnership between ASCIA and Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia and continues to implement the National Allergy Strategy.
The Allergy 250K website aims to provide age-appropriate information and resources to assist young people who are living with severe allergies, and to help them to feel more connected with other teens and young adults going through similar experiences.
The National Allergy Strategy is working with the Australian Digital Health Agency to improve the quality of patient allergy information in My Health Record and to make sure that allergy information can be easily found.
Nip allergies in the Bub is a resource for health professionals and caregivers that provides practical, credible information about infant feeding and optimising eczema management for allergy prevention in babies. See the website at www.preventallergies.org.au.
Shared care is a patient centred approach to care that uses the skills and knowledge of a range of health care professionals who share joint responsibility with the patient, ensuring the patient receives the right care, at the right time, from the right health professional(s), in the right place.
The National Allergy Strategy has received funding from the Australian Government Department of Health for the following projects:
Food allergy prevention | 250K Youth Project | Food service | Drug allergy | Shared Care Model
