Abstract:

Over the past fifty years there has been an increase in the number of people in the UK who have a Sickle Cell Disorder (SCD) or are carriers. This increase has led to an expansion in research in this area; however one particular area that has not been researched rigorously is people’s knowledge, attitudes and behaviour towards SCD and genetic screening. Members of the Sickle Cell Society provided an ideal population for this exploratory study looking at people’s knowledge, attitudes and behaviours towards the SCD and genetic screening. This paper reports on the process and findings of this postal study.
