Our friend Jeff Noble has a weekly podcast series “The FASD Success Show.”  He has regular guests on to talk about life with FASD, including a recent interview with our own Susan Elsworth.

Jeff recently held a webinar with Dr. Mansfield Mela. Their discussion focused on the world’s FIRST medication algorithm for individuals with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome.

What an amazing step forward in finding appropriate treatments for individuals with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder  

Jeff has released the recorded webinar, and we want to help get the word out!  This is a major advancement.

During his video, you will learn:

  • What exactly is a medication algorithm and what can it do?
  • Who is Dr. Mela and how did he and his panel develop this algorithm?
  • Why, despite putting together a medication algorithm, does he say: “Medication is not the answer. It is an adjunct.”
  • How environmental influences play a part in treatment plans.

You will even gain inside knowledge on what the general guiding principles and protocols are that clinicians use when reviewing algorithms and prescribing medications.

You can watch the recorded webinar here on Jeff’s site, where you will also be able to download the actual algorithm as well!
