Résumé / Abstract

Introduction. Neonatal metabolic screening test is effective to detect inborn errors of metabolism which can lead to mental retardation; the aim of this work was to evaluate the participation of nurses in a neonatal hypothyroidism screening program (NHSP). Material and methods. Nurses (n=120) from a reference hospital were trained on theoretical and practical aspects of congenital NHSP; nurse training commenced in 1990. Results. In 1990, 4 871 newborns were screened, corresponding to 73% of coverage; in 2000, the coverage raised to 97%. During the 1990-2000 period, 37 cases of congenital hypothyroidism were detected which represent a incidence of 1:1275. Conclusion. An increased coverage of the NHSP was achieved with the involvement of the nurse staff; obtaining blood samples for a NHSP may be a routine practice of nurses.
