RESEARCH STUDY - Genetic Carrier Screening
Posted by Ebony on Tue 01 Jun 2021, 05:47
Did you have genetic testing when planning to start your family or during your pregnancy? If so, the University of Technology Sydney would like to invite you to participate in research about your experience.
We are interested in hearing the views of individuals or couples who have had a type of genetic testing called reproductive genetic carrier screening. Other names for this test include preconception carrier screening or expanded carrier screening. We want to involve participants who have a range of experiences of this testing and encourage anyone who thinks they may be eligible to register their interest.
If you prefer, you may join an online focus group with up to 8 others who have had reproductive carrier screening or have an online one-on-one interview with a researcher. We appreciate that family planning and pregnancy can be a sensitive topic to discuss, so we will ask you choose either a focus group or a one-on-one interview when you register your interest. You can participate on your own or with your partner. We will run the focus groups and the interviews virtually using a software called Zoom, meaning you can participate from the comfort of your own home.
