Training

FASD is entirely preventable if women do not drink alcohol while pregnant, but survey data shows that up to 25% of women continue to drink. Research indicates that many doctors continue to advise women that light to moderate consumption of alcohol, especially later in pregnancy, is safe. While evidence-based screening tools and intervention strategies have been shown to be effective, these are not widely used. The goal of the FASD Prevention Project training activities is to increase provider knowledge of the risks alcohol can pose to a fetus and encourage the use of FASD prevention strategies. The following training offers health care providers opportunities for increased knowledge and peer support.
