We aim to produce a trained health and medical research workforce that can respond to the demand for evidence on prevention, diagnosis and intervention to reduce the incidence and burden of FASD.
All FASD Research Australia researchers will participate in the program of learning designed to generate research capability, mentoring and further career development. This program of learning will also build capacity in research translation. It will include development of an annual curriculum, delivered through seminars, workshops and a Research Communication Forum.
Throughout the five year period the FASD Research Australia CRE will offer and encourage training in specific topics such as:
consumer and community engagement
cultural awareness training and principles of research in Aboriginal communities
Train-the-Trainer programs for FASD
measurement and instrumentation
psychological assessment and clinical issues in diagnosis
