      Hanson, Bridget; Neander, Lucia; Porter, Rebecca (Center for Behavioral Health Research and Services, 2017)
      As part of an ACNM collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and its partners and grantees on a project to prevent fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASDs), ACNM members were surveyed to generate an assessment of practice behaviors of certified nurse-midwives and certified midwives related to the prevention of FASDs. The information will be used as a baseline from which to measure change in nurse-midwives’ and midwives’ practice behaviors over the course of the project. Results from the assessment will also be used to inform detailed collaborative activities between ACNM and CDC grantees whose efforts specifically target nurse-midwives (i.e., University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA), University of California San Diego, University of Pittsburgh).
    • Prevention of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders: Practice Behaviors, Attitudes, and Confidence among Members of the American College of Nurse-Midwives 2018

      Porter, Rebecca; Hanson, Bridget; Mertz, Robyn (Center for Behavioral Health Research and Services, 2018)
      As part of an ACNM collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and its partners and grantees on a project to prevent fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASDs), ACNM members were surveyed to assess the practice behaviors of certified nurse midwives and certified midwives related to the prevention of FASDs. Two surveys were conducted; the first served as a baseline from which to measure change in nurse-midwives’ and midwives’ practice behaviors over the course of the project. Results from the baseline assessment were also used to inform detailed collaborative activities between ACNM and CDC grantees whose efforts specifically target nurse-midwives (i.e., University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA); University of California, San Diego; University of Pittsburgh). The second survey was conducted 15 months after the baseline as a follow-up and findings were compared to the baseline.
