The Newborn Screening Education Best Practice Framework is intended to help users design and evaluate approaches to newborn screening awareness building and education efforts. This framework will guide them through the process of selecting contextually appropriate newborn screening education approaches. Using the Newborn Screening Education Best Practice Framework, those designing and implementing newborn screening education approaches will benefit from shared data/practices that result in a more efficient use of resources. Downstream, families will benefit from more effective education efforts that successfully reach intended audiences with information that is needed and relevant to them. The goal of the Newborn Screening Education Best Practice Framework is to help users identify evidence-based education approaches to address issues in newborn screening education. The core components of using the framework are the guiding questions, flowchart, implementation, and evaluation of the selected approach.
