9th International Research Conference on Adolescents and Adults with FASD
April 11 @ 9:00 am - April 14 @ 4:30 pm$150
Despite thousands of published articles on FASD, limited research focuses specifically on adolescents and adults with FASD. As individuals diagnosed with FASD age, the “need to know” across a broad spectrum of areas continues to be critically important for identifying clinically relevant research questions and directions that will impact their day-to-day function and health outcomes.
Building on the work of eight previous conferences*, we aim to examine relevant global research, programs and policies. What can we learn from practice-based evidence? What does existing or emerging research tell us? Are the results transferable from country to country and/or from laboratory and clinical studies to real life? Are there clinical implications of results from any of these areas of which we should be aware? What are the changes in our thinking, practice and directions that will be required to improve outcomes? What are the implications for the future?
We hope you can join us at this interactive conference and be at the forefront of addressing these relevant global issues.
*This conference, previously held in Vancouver, Canada and hosted by University of British Columbia’s Interprofessional Continuing Education, has been moved to Seattle, the birthplace of the FASD diagnosis in North America. FASD United has taken on the task of putting on this unique global FASD conference in consultation with the International Adult Leadership Collaborative (ALC) FASD Changemakers, a group of talented and dedicated individuals with FASD who are leaders in the community.
This conference has been moved to Seattle, Washington – the closest place to Vancouver and the birthplace of the FASD diagnosis in North America.
