Mass screening for celiac disease from the perspective of newly diagnosed adolescents and their parents: A mixed method study Full Text
BMC Public Health, 10/26/2011
Rosen A et al. – Although the incentives to participate in the celiac disease (CD) screening were partly non–personal, and diagnosis was met with surprise, adolescents and parents felt grateful that they were made aware. They welcomed future CD screening, but suggested that it should be conducted earlier in life. Thus, CD mass screening seemed acceptable to most of those who were diagnosed and their parents.
