Nurses and Midwives: Partnering to Prevent FASDs
is part of the Collaborative for Alcohol-Free Pregnancy, a group of national partners, medical societies, university centers, and a variety of practitioners from six health disciplines who work together to prevent FASDs and excessive drinking. The partners include:
- National Association of Nurse Practitioners in Women's Health
- American College of Nurse-Midwives
- Association of Women's Health, Obstetric, and Neonatal Nurses
- University of Alaska Anchorage Center for Behavioral Health Research and Services
The goal of the Collaborative is to impact healthcare practice at the systems level and enhance FASD prevention opportunities nationally for women of reproductive age and their support networks. Our partnership aims to increase knowledge and skills among advanced practice nurses and midwives about the health impact of excessive alcohol use, including any alcohol use during pregnancy, to reduce alcohol-exposed pregnancies and improve population health.
The site offers curricula to provide support to women's health nurse practitioner and midwifery program faculty to easily incorporate FASD-related content into their courses. Webinars, recommendations activities, and other materials are divided into 7 short modules that can be used together or individually based on faculty course needs and preferences. Learn More
