Are you a Healthcare Professional?
Participate in our Survey to improve prenatal screening communication and diagnosis delivery
We have partnered with Queensland Health and the University of Queensland to look at (1) healthcare professionals’ experiences, confidence, and access to resources regarding explaining prenatal screening and delivering genetic syndrome diagnoses, and (2) healthcare professionals’ perspectives on the utility of this Prenatal Screening website.
We are looking for Healthcare professionals working primarily in Queensland who are involved with prenatal screening and genetic syndrome diagnosis delivery to participate in this survey, including: General Practitioners, General Practitioner Liaison Officers, obstetricians, Maternal Fetal Medicine specialists, Genetic Counsellors, and Mental Health Nurses.
Please click the link below to access the study which we anticipate will take between 10-20 minutes to complete, and thank you for your time.
