More Information:

This online FASD curriculum is developed to assist professionals in learning the processes, procedures, and in developing the skillset needed to be effective members of a multidisciplinary diagnostic team.

The curriculum is designed for clinical and allied health professionals who are either currently working in FASD clinics or for those who will soon become members of multidisciplinary diagnostic clinic in Canada.

The online course includes common concepts that apply to all disciplines comprising the diagnostic team and focusses on the core concepts that are required for professionals who are involved in making FASD diagnoses. The expectation is that the participants will have a working knowledge of the field, professional competency in their own area of specialty, and exposure to the relevant research literature.

This is not an introductory course on FASD.

This course is MOC-3 accredited and provides standardized training based on current evidence and the new Canadian guidelines. Diagnostic teams are encouraged to take this course together and there are places for discussion and deliberation among the team within the curriculum.

This course was co-developed with the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada (SOGC) and was planned to achieve scientific integrity, objectivity and balance.
