Lots of Media Interest on FASD - what does it mean for you?
The FASD Trust today published a Consensus Statement on FASD, by medics for medics. This will mean, in theory, that parents and carers will no longer be bounced around the system, that children at risk will be identified earlier, that children who no longer live with their birth mother will have their pre-natal alcohol exposure noted on their medical records and that there will be clear referral and diagnosis pathways for those who are affected.
Hopefully this is the start of moving forward and improving the care given to those affected by FASD. If you want a copy of the report, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
