"Understanding the Public Attitude towards the Prolonged Retention and Extended Research Use of Residual Newborn Dried Blood Spots in the Netherlands" - Marjolein Hendriks and Mariska Scheffe

In the Netherlands, newborn dried blood spots are currently stored for a maximum period of 5 years: one year for quality control and 4 years for secondary use such as biomedical research. For our internship we assessed the opinion of Dutch parents(-to-be) towards a longer retention period and different secondary uses. To get more insight into the attitude of Dutch parents(-to-be) we conducted research using an online survey, focus groups and in-depth interviews. In this colloquium we will discuss the main findings of our study.
