2022-25 Wisconsin Newborn Screening (NBS) Program: An Introduction
Did you know? Not all parent/guardians are notified of their infants' NBS results and/or needed referrals that were made/completed. This puts infants at risk. This activity is intended for pediatric clinicians who wish to improve their understanding of the NBS process, NBS rates, communication of NBS results with parent/guardians and making appropriate referrals. This activity was created by geneticists, genetic counselors, pediatricians, public health representatives and parents.
MD, DO, RN, APRN, LPN, PA, Midwives, Genetic Counselors, Phlebotomists
Participants completing this CME module will be able to:
- Describe the Wisconsin Newborn Screening (NBS) program, including what conditions are included.
- Provide education to families about the NBS process and the difference between a screen and a diagnostic test.
- Define possible NBS results, identify when further action is required and identify resources for providers and families.
- Communicate with families about NBS results and next steps following borderline and positive results.
