GA²LEN Anaphylaxis Centres of Reference and Excellence – ANACARE
GA²LEN, the Global Allergy and Asthma European Network, has recently launched a programme for the development, interaction and accreditation of centers of reference and excellence in special areas of allergy embedded in its overall quality management of allergy centres of excellence.
Anaphylaxis is a debilitating condition and can be a challenge for both patients and treating physicians. Centers of reference and excellence in Anaphylaxis (ANACAREs) can help to improve the management of hard to treat conditions. Here, we describe the aims, the requirements and deliverables, the application process, and the audit and accreditation protocol for GA²LEN ANACAREs. The main aims of GA²LEN ANACAREs are to provide excellence in Anaphylaxis management, education and to increase the knowledge of Anaphylaxis by research and to promote the awareness of Anaphylaxis by advocacy activities.
