NHS Education Scotland has recently launched our nation's first on-line course on Foetal Alcohol Harm and Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FAS/FASD).

The resource has been developed to support a range of activity led by the Scottish Government to substantially reduce the harm caused by alcohol consumption in pregnancy across Scotland.

The course content was developed by 'Children in Scotland' with input from the child and maternal health team at NES and the Scottish Government Fetal Alcohol harm national working group. The content was transformed into an interactive e-learning resource and the draft resource was tested and piloted by the maternal and child health team at NES and a group of clinical midwives and lecturers.
