A retrospective study was performed to explore carrier testing among women who were possible or obligate carriers of the haemophilia gene.
Knowledge of the possibility of carrier testing and use of carrier testing were studied separately.
In our exploration we were guided by the diffusion theory and the Health Belief Model.
Logistic regression analysis showed that four factors were statistically significant related to knowledge of carrier testing: information via mass media, a haemophilic relative in the nuclear family rather than in the extended family, medical severity of haemophilia, and information from the patients' organization.
