CME Course Offered by ARHP

The goal of the Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder Prevention Project is to increase provider knowledge of the risks alcohol can pose to a fetus and encourage the use of FASD prevention strategies. This curriculum developed by the Association of Reproductive Health Professionals (ARHP) will empower clinicians to use effective communication and motivational interviewing skills to communicate to patients that the only way to prevent FASD is no drinking during pregnancy.

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  1. Understand FASD and its effects on fetal development
  2. Apply appropriate patient-centered communication skills to counsel patients on the risks of alcohol consumption during pregnancy
  3. Identify/recognize high risk patients.
  4. Integrate alcohol absence in contraceptive counseling and family planning.
