2.1

Title

Fetal Alcohol Harm in Scotland – Development of an Educational Resource

2.2

Description of the goods or services required

The term Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) describes a spectrum of structural, behavioural and neurocognitive impairments caused by maternal alcohol consumption during pregnancy. FASD is an umbrella term that includes Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) and a range of alcohol-related birth defects and effects (No-FAS UK, 2011).

Current educational provision about this subject area for health professionals working with women of childbearing age, pregnant women, newborns and young children appears to be patchy. Both undergraduate and continuing professional development programmes for doctors, paediatric nurses, midwives, sexual health nurses and advisors and public health nurses have very little, if any, specific education relating to fetal alcohol harm.

The overall aim of this project is to address this gap through the development of an on-line educational resource that would be suitable for use by students and health professionals.

Applicants should identify in their application whether they wish to undertake part i or part ii or both parts of the project.

i. Development of the content of the online educational resource

ii. Conversion of the course content into an attractive interactive online resource.
