Disclosing to parents newborn carrier status identified by routine blood spot screening

The aim of this systematic review is to assess the impact of communication about disclosing carrier status following newborn screening; and to collate the relevant evidence about parents’ and health professionals’ views. This systematic review was published by EPPI-Centre in 2004. Systematic reviews aim to find as much as possible of the research relevant to the particular research questions, and use explicit methods to identify what can reliably be said on the basis of these studies.
