Abstract

Hemochromatosis is a treatable disorder with a major genetic predisposition. It provides an example in which genotypic and phenotypic strategies for screening may be compared. We previously showed noninferiority of uptake of a genotypic population screening strategy for hemochromatosis compared with a phenotypic strategy. In this article we present the psychologic effects of each strategy.
