New Survey! Seeking intensivists views of ethical challenges of rapid genomic sequencing

Should genomic testing go ahead without parental consent? When results could drastically impact a child’s quality of life, should parents be allowed to decline testing?

Share your views in this 10-minute survey. 

We are seeking the views of English-speaking paediatric or neonatal intensivists (either practising or in training) on the use of rapid genomic sequencing for critically ill infants. Our short survey will ask about two different ethical scenarios surrounding gaining consent for genomic testing and how a genomic test might influence treatment decisions.

This will be the first study to collect global intensivist perspectives on this topic.
