2013 Paediatric Endocrine Nurses Conference
Our President, Michelle, recently spoke at this conference, offering a parent's perspective on living with CAH. Michelle, also discussed the lack of newborn screening for CAH in Australia. The presentation was enthusiatically received, with Michelle getting plenty of positive feedback from the conference delgates.
Newborn screening for CAH is still not routinely tested for in Australia. We are one of the only developed countries who do not test for CAH.
The mortality rate for boys with CAH is higher than that of girls. If we had newborn screening this would not be the case.See the News page for details of CAHSGA efforts in this area.
