Welcome to the PRIME study website!
PRIME stands for PRenatal screening Informed-decision Making Evaluations.
Description of the study
Prenatal screening, such as non-invasive prenatal test (NIPT) and structural ultrasound scans, allow expectant parents to learn more about the (expected) health of their unborn child. Preferably, the pregnant woman chooses together with her decisional partner(s) whether this prenatal screening is carried through. The decisional partner can be for instance the co-parent, a family member or friend. At this point it is unclear how decisional partners reach a joint decision, something we call the joint informed decision-making (J-IDM) process. We investigate what are the important factors for joint informed decision-making in prenatal screening. We ask pregnant women and their decisional partners, prenatal care providers and scientists about their experiences and opinions. This information is combined in a joint decision questionnaire. We then test the quality (validity) of the questionnaire. This project provides insight into the process and consequences of joint decision-making and may give possible starting points for improving joint decision processes.
