­­Participating healthcare providers are recruiting couples to take part in Mackenzie’s Mission

Mackenzie’s Mission is investigating the best way to provide reproductive genetic carrier screening as a national program in Australia. To achieve this, we are recruiting participants in targeted regions to reflect the distribution of the Australian population, and current practice for pre-pregnancy and pregnancy care.

Healthcare providers at selected sites across Australia, including general practitioners, obstetricians, midwives, genetics health professionals and fertility specialists, are inviting couples to take part in this study. Participating healthcare providers receive training from our study team, enabling them to appropriately offer information about Mackenzie’s Mission and ensure their patients can make informed decisions about participating.

If you are interested in being involved and recruiting your patients to take part in Mackenzie’s Mission, please contact our study team to find out if you are located in one of our targeted recruitment areas.
