The purpose of the grant opportunity is for the continuation of the Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) Hub Australia, and to expand activities under this program. The continuation of the FASD Hub Australia contributes to the objectives of the Program by supporting:
• prevention and early intervention activities and providing evidence-based information about drug and alcohol through education; and
• drug and alcohol data to support evidence-based treatment, national policy and service delivery.
The FASD Hub Australia is a repository for clinical information, diagnostic tools, referral services, research and consumer information. It offers resources for a range of professionals that will support their knowledge and understanding of FASD; and how to work effectively with individuals affected by this disorder.
The objectives of the grant opportunity are to:
• expand awareness and use of the FASD Hub Australia; increase community knowledge and understanding of the harms and lifelong consequences of FASD, and promote awareness of the ‘no safe level’ recommendation for women who are or may become pregnant, or are breastfeeding;
• improve access to, and quality of, general resources for anyone with an interest or need relating to FASD and alcohol consumption during pregnancy or while breastfeeding;
• increase clinician knowledge of the assessment and diagnosis of FASD, and increase clinician use of the FASD Diagnostic Tool;
• promote and facilitate registrations of interest and the reporting of FASD diagnoses to the Australian FASD Register;
• provide reliable, targeted information to address the needs of specific professional groups of interest, including clinicians, researchers, policy makers, and other health professionals; and
• enhance existing activities as well as introduce new initiatives to build upon and increase the use and impact of the FASD Hub Australia.
