Description:
Newborn Screening for Cystic Fibrosis (NSCF) , when associated with early treatment, improves nutrition in childhood, reduces the burden of care for families and may improve survival (Castellani et al , 2009). An early diagnosis of Cystic Fibrosis (CF) has a beneficial effect on nutritional status, with improved growth, height and weight, and may prevent deficiency of fat-soluble vitamins and protein malnutrition (Castellani et al , 2009). Equally an early diagnosis of CF results in less parental stress compared to a delayed diagnosis (Castellani et al , 2009). In June 2009, a National Steering Group was established to oversee the development and implementation of newborn screening for cystic fibrosis in Ireland. The HSE National Service Plan 2011 outlined that newborn screening for CF would be introduced as an integral component of the existing National Newborn Bloodspot Screening Programme (NNBSP).
