Does She or Doesn't She? A Women's Health Perspective on Alcohol Use in Pregnancy

Thu, 21 Aug, 2014 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Time Zone: America/New_York
Local Time: Thu, 21 Aug, 2014 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

Presenter: Susan Kendig, JD, MSN
AWHONN, National Partner for FASD Prevention Project

Join us for a Peer Learning Community immediately following Sue’s webinar from 2:45 – 3:30pm EST to ask questions to the presenter and engage in lively discussion regarding techniques and lessons learned from the webinar.

Alcohol use among women of childbearing age presents many challenges to health care professionals.  The medical, obstetrical, and neonatal complications associated with alcohol use during pregnancy are well established.  Yet current messaging seems to be moving away from "No safe amount", to "A small amount is OK".  This presentation will provide an overview of alcohol dependence from a women's health perspective, with emphasis on alcohol use during pregnancy.  Assessment strategies to identify women at risk for or currently using alcohol in pregnancy, and mechanisms to facilitate brief interventions and referrals will be presented.  Additionally, participants will consider alternate messages that encourage pregnant women to informed decisions about alcohol use in pregnancy.
