Learning Objectives

As a result of this session, participants will be able to:

  1. Discuss how FAS is often overlooked in all areas of medicine, including psychiatry, so the main goal of this talk is to raise our awareness of this diagnosis and treatment options.
  2. Learn that missing this diagnosis in existing patients and not educating expectant mothers about the risk reduced the quality of our overall care of our patient population.
  3. Increase referrals to Early Start and other preventative resources.
