YouTube videos for physicians on screening for alcohol use in pregnancy

The Best Start Resource Centre has just uploaded many of their videos to You Tube, including its 2005 video Effective Practices in Screening for Alcohol Use in Pregnancy .

This video, designed as part of a training module, informs physicians about alcohol use and abuse in pregnancy and supports physicians in appropriate screening and assessment of their pregnant patients with tools and resources.

At less than 15 minutes (it’s split into two parts), it’s worth looking at – there’s some really great examples of what NOT to do and suggestions for ways of broaching and discussing alcohol with pregnant women. (You can also marvel at how training materials for 2005 already look dated to viewers in 2011…)
