guest post: The 9th International Research Conference on Adolescents and Adults with FASD
The 9th International Research Conference on Adolescents and Adults with FASD: Review, Respond and Relate – Integrating Research, Policy and Practice Around the World
April 22-25, 2020
The Hyatt Regency, Vancouver, BC, Canada
Although there have been thousands of published articles on FASD in general, there has been limited research specifically on adolescents and adults with FASD or on individuals across the lifespan. As those individuals diagnosed with FASD continue to age, the “need to know” across a broad spectrum of areas is becoming critically important for identifying clinically relevant research questions and directions.
Continuing on the work of eight previous conferences, there remains a clear need 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 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? This interactive conference will provide an opportunity to be at the forefront of addressing these relevant global issues.
The Call for Abstracts is now open, deadline: September 13, 2019

Interprofessional Continuing Education at The University of British Columbia
For three decades, the University of British Columbia has been committed to the concept of interprofessional continuing education in the health sciences – a multidisciplinary approach to learning where several professions come together to exchange ideas about various health issues.
In recent years, this concept has evolved to include members of the public, often patients and family members who are facing the challenge of a particular disease. Interprofessional Continuing Education at UBC presents conferences for an interdisciplinary group of professionals, policy officials and the public on a variety of topics. We have been offering programs for over thirty years.
