Overview

Parents and newborn baby

The survey is being conducted by the Newborn Bloodspot Screening Working Group. This group includes representatives and experts from the fields of nursing, bioethics, consumer advocacy, newborn screening, paediatrics, pathology, policy development and state, territory and Commonwealth governments. The Working Group has been tasked with the development of a national policy framework for newborn bloodspot screening in Australia. A national policy framework is being developed to support the continued success of the newbonr screening programs, and enable them to develop into the future.

The aim of the survey is to obtain input from a broad range of stakeholders to:

  • determine the suitability of the proposed policy framework to guide newborn screening operations in Australia
  • provide greater clarity on key issues identified by the Working Group
  • identify any gaps within the proposed policy framework
  • identify parts of the framework for which there are a range of views.
