Australasian Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders Conference 2013 overview

The 2013 Australasian Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) Conference was held in Brisbane, Queensland, on the 19-20 November 2013. It brought together professionals and supporters of FASD to discuss and share information on FASD.

A new study, released on day one of the conference, found strong evidence that exposure to parental alcohol use is associated with increased risk of children entering care.

Dr James Fitzpatrick, a leading expert on FASD, talked about what some doctors miss when talking to their patients about pregnancy.

The conference also included the screening of Barkly fights FASD, a short film created and performed by the people of Barkly, Northern Territory (NT). The story shows the challenges families can face when it comes to alcohol and pregnancy through the use of professional puppets.
