Questionnaire on severe allergic reactions

For the registration of severe allergic cases in the health sector a questionnaire was developed on the basis of a previous instrument (EU 1998). The registration was announced in the Allergo Journal. Further announcement was made by Melloni Hospital among Italian network participants.

The questionnaire records severe allergic reactions, symptoms and elicitors, medication, a detailed number of cases in previous years and number of anaphylaxis cases recorded as well as numbers of unspecified death cases. Due to weak response rates a short registration questionnaire was developed for rapid fax based written surveys.

It mainly addresses severe allergic reactions, symptoms and elicitors, medication. The questionnaire has been developed in close co-operation within REDALL and approved by the project group.
