Allergy Today Newsbite: Anaphylaxis information now available in Māori, Samoan and Tongan

Information about anaphylaxis has been translated into Māori, Samoan and Tongan, thanks to the Starship Foundation, and the Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology & Allergy (ASCIA). Screen Shot 2019-11-18 at 2

These are new additions to ASCIA’s collection of anaphylaxis resources available in English and other languages including Chinese and Arabic.

The information sheets that have been translated are:
• Anaphylaxis Patient Information
• Fact sheet for Parents
• First Aid for Anaphylaxis
• How to give EpiPen.

These are now freely available from ASCIA’s website (https://www.allergy.org.au/hp/anaphylaxis#ta5).

Allergy New Zealand CEO Mark Dixon says it is really important for the community to have these resources. “Often it is parents having to explain to grandparents and others the importance of managing food allergy and how to respond to anaphylaxis. For different ethnicities, having this information in their own language rather than English can make all the difference”.
