The Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder series will provide you with the opportunity to gain knowledge, learn practical approaches and carefully consider the complexities associated with drinking in pregnancy, multidisciplinary practice, and working with invisible disabilities.
In these three courses on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) you will have the opportunity to gain knowledge, learn practical approaches and carefully consider the complexities associated with drinking in pregnancy, multidisciplinary practice, and working with invisible disabilities. Presentation of evidence, discussions, and links to further resources are all part of the learning modules.
These courses were designed in a way that has been found useful in Canada’s world leadership on FASD policy and practice: linking the work of maternal health and addictions experts, pediatricians and parents and caregivers, to create integrated and effective approaches to prevention, diagnosis, intervention and support. In no other educational forum have these three aspects of FASD work been brought together in this way.
The overall objectives of these three linked courses are: to engage practitioners in learning and critical thinking about alcohol use in pregnancy and alcohol-related disabilities; and to inspire best practice when working with women of childbearing years, with pregnant women who drink alcohol, and with people affected by in-utero alcohol exposure, with and without diagnoses.
This program was supported in part by educational funding from the Public Health Agency of Canada.
