Audit C eLearning Package

To improve health professionals’ confidence and ability with risk screening and application of the AUDIT-C tool, this learning guide assists with self-directed learning on Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, AUDIT-C risk screening and providing pregnancy (and breastfeeding) brief interventions related to alcohol use.
