Input from consumers of health care was sought in developing an educational program to be provided to individuals who are considering carrier testing for cystic fibrosis (CF).
In addition, we assessed the ability of health professionals to predict consumers' priorities with regard to such information.
A focus group of six middle school teachers formulated questions that they would ask in trying to decide whether they wanted carrier screening for CF.
Then, other adults with (n=39) and without (n=60) a family history of CF were presented with the questions and were asked to select the questions in the order in which they would want them answered if offered the carrier test.
