Online scan of FASD prevention and health promotion resources for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities

This online scan sought to identify the scope and gaps in publicly available FASD prevention and health promotion resources, and assess their cultural appropriateness for use among five key groups of Indigenous Australian people including: (i) pregnant women, (ii) women of childbearing age, (iii) grandmothers and aunties, (iv) men, and (v) health professionals.

A range of high‐quality, culturally appropriate resources were identified, however, many health professionals were not aware of their availability. Further resource development is suggested for men, grandmothers and aunties.
