Need

Fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) is easily undetected or misdiagnosed. As such, there is a lack of understanding of FASD by health professionals.

There is a timely need for education to address the keys to prevention, screening, diagnosis and support outcomes for children and families affected by FASD.

Purpose

The purpose of this Course is to enhance awareness and information regarding fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD), in order to ensure registered nurses and other health professionals are able to provide assistance and support to those affected by FASD.

Learning Outcomes

  • Use knowledge of the effects of alcohol on the developing foetus to educate women of childbearing age on the issue of FASD.
  • Identify individuals at risk of FASD through screening and assessing infants, children, adolescents, and adults for FASD and other prenatal alcohol-related disorders.
  • Identify ethical, legal and political issues related to FASD that may be barriers to the implementation of interventions for those who are affected by this condition.

Target Audience

This Course is relevant to registered nurses and other health professionals who care for women of childbearing age who may be at risk of drinking during pregnancy, and who may care for children and/or adults who have a diagnosis of FASD.

Highly educational. There is culture surrounding alcohol consumption in Australia. Alcohol is seen as a harmless drug but it has major health affects on the human body especially during pregnancy
