Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Tutor

Fetal Alcohol Syndrome is a permanent birth defect syndrome caused by maternal consumption of alcohol during pregnancy, it is a leading known cause of mental retardation and is entirely preventable. Effective prevention of this syndrome begins with accurate, consistent diagnosis.

For the trained clinician, dysmorphologist, or clinical geneticist there is little difficulty in making the diagnosis of FAS when the typical anomalies in growth, face, and brain are all extreme and the alcohol exposure is conclusive and substantial.

In the absence of accurate, reproducible and unbiased methods for measuring and recording the severity of exposure and outcome in individual patients, diagnoses will continue to vary widely from clinic to clinic. From a clinical perspective, diagnostic misclassification leads to inappropriate patient care, increased risk for secondary disabilities and missed opportunities to achieve prevention.

This CD-ROM includes the Diagnostic Guide for Fetal Alchohol Syndrome and Related Conditions. It also provides the user with various practice examinations providing a final score on completion of the final practice paper.

Compatible with both Windows and Macintosh.
