MIDIRS Information Team have updated a Search Pack that was first created back in 1994. Screening for Down’s Syndrome has evolved significantly since then, with many different screening and diagnostic tests available to pregnant women. Because of the large overlaps between various methods, we have decided to include all articles on Down’s screening into one handy Search Pack – meaning the hundreds of articles in the Fetal Nuchal Translucency and Triple Test Packs will now be bundled together in the Down’s Syndrome screening Pack.
Updated frequently, this new Search Pack covers all existing screening and diagnostic methods, as well as research into potential new methods being developed. It also includes articles on pregnancy outcomes following diagnosis, the role of maternal age, women’s attitudes to screening and much more.
The resources in our Search Packs can range from journal articles, online news items, research reports, press releases, government publications to web-based journal articles. Each search contains full bibliographic references and an abstract.
Reference Database and MIDIRS Gold subscribers can view all Search Packs for free simply by logging in to the Database. Non-subscribers can purchase Search Packs for just £9.95, or can subscribe to the Reference Database for just £13.13 a quarter.
