The Arc

The Arc is the largest national community-based organization advocating
for and serving people with intellectual and developmental disabilities
and their families.  ACNM is partnering with The Arc to create educational resources for our members to learn more about the prevention of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Disorder (FASD). 


The Arc's Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders
Prevention Project
encourages healthcare providers to screen women of
childbearing age for alcohol use and inform them about the dangers of using
alcohol during all phases of pregnancy. 


Another partner, the Association of Reproductive Health
Professionals
, has developed a one-hour, online course that healthcare
professionals can take to obtain continuing education credits. This course,  Preventing Fetal Alcohol
Spectrum Disorders
, reviews outcomes associated with prenatal alcohol
exposure and discusses how healthcare providers can help detect and address
risky drinking in patients that are pregnant or of reproductive age. Physicians can
earn up to 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditTM . Nurses
Practitioners and Nurses can earn 1.0 contact hour, including up to 0.5
pharmacology hours.
