New anaphylaxis and allergy action plans now available

The Australian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy (ASCIA) has recently updated its action plans for anaphylaxis and allergic reactions. ASCIA recommends that action plans should be reviewed when patients are reassessed by their doctor, and each time they obtain a new adrenaline autoinjector prescription, which is approximately every 12 to 18 months.  

Go to the ASCIA website.
