SIGN prenatal alcohol exposure guideline
This CPD activity consists of 4 multiple‑choice questions (MCQs) designed to test your knowledge on combined hormonal contraception.
The questions, written by Dr Jenny Bennison, relate to her expert article, Prenatal alcohol exposure: identification improves outcomes, where she explores the updated SIGN guideline on prenatal alcohol exposure (PAE) and fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD), including diagnostic criteria, how to support people with FASD, and when to record someone as ‘at risk for neurodevelopment disorder and FASD, associated with prenatal alcohol exposure’.
On completion of this activity, you should be able to:
- describe what is considered a ‘safe’ level of maternal consumption of alcohol
- how to make a diagnosis of FASD
- understand whether FASD can be made without a confirmed incident of PAE.
