Menzies School of Health Research
Menzies School of Health Research, in partnership with the National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation and the Telethon Kids Institute, developed and implemented a flexible, modular package of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) Prevention and Health Promotion Resources (FPHPR). The FPHPR Package aims to prevent and reduce the impact of FASD in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families and young children by providing health professionals with access to culturally appropriate resources to enhance their capacity to provide accurate, consistent information on the risks associated with alcohol consumption during pregnancy. These resources are intended to be delivered via face to face training.
This work was funded by the Australian Government Department of Health.
