About ASCIA anaphylaxis e-training for pharmacists
ASCIA anaphylaxis e-training for pharmacists has been developed by the Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy (ASCIA) to provide ready access to reliable anaphylaxis education for pharmacists throughout Australia and New Zealand, at no charge.
Development of ASCIA anaphylaxis e-training has included an extensive review process which involved ASCIA members as well as representatives from other key stakeholder organisations throughout Australasia.
ASCIA anaphylaxis e-training for pharmacists has been updated to Version 7.0 to incorporate:
- Updated and new ASCIA Action and First Aid Plans.
- New infographics and animations to make the training more visual and interactive.
- Instructions for two brands of adrenaline (epinephrine) injectors, EpiPen® and Anapen® (available on the PBS September 2021).
