Fetal alcohol spectrum disorder: knowledge, attitudes and practice within the West Australian justice system

 

Overview

The aims of the research were to:

Separate surveys were undertaken within four sectors of the WA justice system, this included the justice system, judicial, legal, corrections, and police. Even though response rates to the survey were low (23%), responses were relatively consistent across sectors. Awareness of FASD was lower than for FAS across all sectors.
