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.

Our partner, the Association of Reproductive Health Professionals (ARHP), developed a one hour internet-based course to educate women’s health and primary care providers, including physicians, nurse practitioners, nurse-midwives, physician assistants, and other professionals who work in obstetrics/gynecology, neurology, family medicine, and related fields on FASD prevention.

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

  1. Understand that alcohol is a teratogen and identify the outcomes associated with prenatal alcohol exposure
  2. Identify patients at risk for offspring with FASDs
  3. Integrate conversations about the risks of alcohol consumption during pregnancy into contraceptive and family planning counseling
  4. Apply appropriate patient-centered communication skills to counseling reproductive age and pregnant women on prevention strategies to reduce the risks of FASD
  5. Use motivational interviewing to assist pregnant women in choosing to avoid alcohol consumption
