Improving screening for young children with fetal alcohol spectrum disorder

We are seeking clinicians to take part in a research project aiming to enhance the screening of young children suspected of having FASD.  

As a part of this research project, we are seeking to recruit a range of clinicians (e.g., psychologists, paediatricians, GPs, community health nurses) who are:

-                     Involved in the diagnosis of children with FASD, or

-                     Working with children who are suspected of having FASD, and are making referrals for diagnosis

The interview will focus on the most common behaviours or concerns that children who are referred for further assessment display, and what may be useful to capture in a screening tool from both the perspective of those making a diagnosis and those making referrals.

Interviews will take between 30 and 45 minutes and can be conducted via telephone or skype.

If you would like to participate, please contact Stewart McDougall using the contact details below, or provide your contact details using the link below and we will follow up with you.
