The purpose of the study was to evaluate the short term effects of population based screening for carriers of cystic fibrosis.
The outcome measures included perceptions of health, anxiety, and understanding of test results.
Those adults aged between 18 and 45, registered with a general practice in Inner London, who accepted the offer of carrier testing, completed questionnaires before testing, upon receipt of results, and three months later.
Full data were obtained from 427 with negative test results and 14 carriers.
