Resources and Guidelines
As well as academic publications, NAT members and others across Canada prepare resources to guide improvements in practice and policy, to support the prevention of FASD. Here are some examples:
Indigenous Approaches to FASD – These 5 booklets highlight how FASD prevention is understood and practiced in Indigenous traditional culture, recognize the historical, social, political, economic and cultural dimensions of alcohol use during pregnancy, and promote Indigenous women’s health and wellness overall. The series is a collaboration of The Centre of Excellence for Women’s Health, the Thunderbird Partnership Foundation, and the Canada FASD Research Network.
Environmental Scan of Prenatal Services for Marginalized Women in Alberta: Specialized Services — The Marginalized Women Working Group was formed by the Maternal Newborn Child and Youth Strategic Clinical Network to examine the availability and access to prenatal care services for marginalized women in Alberta. This environmental scan has been conducted to determine what prenatal services currently exist for marginalized women in Alberta and identify any gaps or opportunities that may be present.
Reframing Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder: Studying Culture to Identify Communication Challenges and Opportunities — Implicit cultural understandings challenge those working to increase public awareness and support for programs to prevent and address FASD. Understanding these cultural beliefs reveals key challenges that communicators face; it also helps identify opportunities to foster public engagement and build support for policies and programs that are important for reducing the prevalence of FASD as a public health issue. Through a series of interviews with members of the public in Manitoba, Canada, the cultural models that members of the Manitoban public draw on to make sense of this issue are identified.
Family-Centred Maternity and Newborn Care: National Guidelines — The Family-Centred Maternity and Newborn Care: National Guidelines is a resource on maternal and newborn health. It includes the latest information and advice from Canadian experts.
Understanding mothers experiencing homelessness: A gendered approach to finding solutions for family homelessness– This report on mothers and children experiencing homelessness in Alberta was developed by the Canadian Observatory on Homeless.
