CDC Consolidated Training
The AAP is pleased to announce new trainings on fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASDs) from our partners at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The CDC, in partnership with the Collaborative for Alcohol-Free Pregnancy, launched a training website to support healthcare professionals in the prevention, diagnosis, and care management of children with fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASDs). These free, online trainings are available for pediatricians, pediatric clinicians, and other healthcare providers who work with children and families living with the effects of prenatal exposure to alcohol. The courses provide continuing education credits and allow learners the flexibility to complete the trainings at their own pace.
Courses currently available are the following:
- FASD Primer for Healthcare Professionals
- Preventing Alcohol-Exposed Pregnancies
Upcoming courses include the following:
- Diagnostic Overview of FASDs: Recognition and Referral
- Implementing Alcohol Screening and Brief Intervention in Clinical Practice
- Interprofessional Collaborative Practice as a Model for Prevention of Alcohol-Exposed Pregnancies
