250K for teens and young adults

The 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.

Food allergy prevention
 

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.

This project aims to provide accessible, standardised education for food service providers across different environments where food is provided (e.g. cafes, restaurants, hospitals, camps, schools and childhood education and care).

Schools and Children’s Education and Care

This project is developing national Best Practice Guidelines and supporting resources for the prevention and management of anaphylaxis in schools and children’s education and care services.

Shared Care Model for Allergy

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 Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy (ASCIA) and Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia (A&AA), as the leading medical and patient organisations for allergy in Australia, have developed the first National Allergy Strategy for Australia, in collaboration with other stakeholder organisations.
