Public Perceptions of the Benefits and Risks of Newborn Screening

This article identifies public perceptions of the benefits and risks of newborn screening. To assess how the varied outcomes of newborn screening are valued independently and relative to others, the authors conduct a stated preference discrete choice experiment (DCE) to engage members of the public about the types of diseases they would recommend be screened for in newborns.
