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:
- Understand that alcohol is a teratogen and identify the outcomes associated with prenatal alcohol exposure
- Identify patients at risk for offspring with FASDs
- Integrate conversations about the risks of alcohol consumption during pregnancy into contraceptive and family planning counseling
- Apply appropriate patient-centered communication skills to counseling reproductive age and pregnant women on prevention strategies to reduce the risks of FASD
- Use motivational interviewing to assist pregnant women in choosing to avoid alcohol consumption
Continuing education credit is available for this course. For more information, please visit ARHP’s website.
