The following updates that have been made to ASCIA Action Plans:

  • The weight range for adrenaline autoinjectors (150 mcg) has changed from 10-20kg to 7.5-20kg, to be consistent with ASCIA Guidelines and consensus expert opinion.
  • The section for the doctor or nurse practitioner to complete In the RED and GREEN plans is more detailed and clearer.
  • The ORANGE plan (used mostly as a poster) has a new title “ASCIA First Aid Plan for Anaphylaxis” and translated versions of this plan are available on the ASCIA website.

The ECEC version is approved by the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA) for the purposes of the Education and Care Services National Law and published in accordance with regulation 137(1)(e) of the Education and Care Services Regulations.

  • Upon successful completion of the course (by achieving at least 80% in the final assessment module quiz) each participant will be able to print out a form confirming successful completion of the course.
  • To obtain a Certificate of Completion for ASCIA anaphylaxis e-training a result of 80% or higher is required for the Final assessment. If this result is not obtained on the first attempt, users can reattempt the course.
