The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care (the Commission) has released the draft Acute Anaphylaxis Clinical Care Standard for public consultation. The Acute Anaphylaxis Clinical Care Standard will support a national approach to the treatment of anaphylaxis, which is the most severe form of allergic reaction, and potentially life-threatening if not treated immediately. More than four million Australians live with allergies and in the past five years, anaphylaxis hospital admissions in Australia increased 46% to 11,856 in 2018-19. The Commission is keen to receive comments on the draft clinical care standard from healthcare professionals, peak healthcare and consumer organisations, consumers and any other interested parties. If you or your health service organisation provide care to people who may require anaphylaxis treatment - or you are personally affected by anaphylaxis - you are invited to comment on the draft Acute Anaphylaxis Clinical Care Standard.
