Six focus groups (1-1.5 hours in duration) were conducted with 46 participants. People’s views on an opt-out or opt-in approach to receiving follow-up health information were sought. Discussions were audio-recorded, transcribed verbatim, and thematically analysed.
Mixed opinions were identified regarding opt-in or opt-out.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
