Communication following a positive newborn bloodspot screening result – the ReSPoND study

Dr Chudleigh will present the ReSPoND study, a mixed-methods study using four phases, with defined outputs underpinned by Family Systems Theory and using the principles of Experience-based Co-design to develop, implement and evaluate new interventions to improve the delivery of initial positive newborn bloodspot screening results to parents. The importance of providing a more consistent, ‘best practice’ approach, not just in the UK but perhaps globally will be discussed as well as the applicability of these findings to other scenarios.
