A national survey was conducted during October, which has now closed.

The survey was successful in obtaining the views of young people at risk of anaphylaxis across Australia.

The data is currently being analysed and will inform resource development which will commence early in 2017.

The first resource to be developed will be an inviting, informative website specifically for young people.
