The Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education (FARE) has launched new resources and training for health professionals and alcohol and other drug (AOD) sector workers, that provide evidence-based information about alcohol, pregnancy and breastfeeding, and fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD).
- a free, accredited eLearning course which presents the latest evidence about the risks of drinking alcohol during pregnancy, the impact of prenatal alcohol exposure and how to provide advice consistent with the Alcohol Guidelines
- a patient brochure about pregnancy, breastfeeding and alcohol
- resources for AOD Sector workers who support women who may be alcohol dependent, produced in collaboration with NOFASD Australia
The resources and training are part of FARE’s national campaign, called Every Moment Matters, that supports alcohol-free pregnancy and safe breastfeeding practices, in line with the Alcohol Guidelines.
