A Social Ecological Analysis of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders Prevention Programming

M. Katherine Ott, MS, CHES, Lisa Quinn, MSN, CRNP, Sharon J. Thompson, PhD, RN, MPH


Approximately 12% of pregnant women in the United States consume alcohol during pregnancy even though a majority of medical and governmental organizations recommend abstinence during pregnancy. The objective of this paper is to review the potential that comprehensive prevention programming based on the social ecological model could have on reducing FASD through primary prevention strategies. Funders, policy makers, practitioners and researchers should further implement and test social ecological approaches to help prevent FASD.
