FASD Prevention Tool Kit for Women's Health Care Providers
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), in collaboration with CDC, has developed the Women and Alcohol Website which provides resources for women’s health care providers in identifying women who drink too much and in providing brief educational counseling to reduce or eliminate alcohol use. It also provides information for the public along with linked resources. This website is a one-stop choice, offering a cell phone app, downloadable patient information sheets, current news articles, treatment referral information, and more. Some examples of tools you can find here include:
- Alcohol screening and brief intervention at a glance – Pocket card
- Tips for working with women who drink
- iPhone app for identifying and intervening with women who drink at risk levels
- ACOG Committee Opinion: At risk drinking and alcohol dependence: Obstetric and gynecologic implications
- Additional clinician resources
- Community resources
Continuing medical education credits are available through ACOG.
These resources are available at no charge to women's health care providers. Visit the Women and Alcohol Website.
