DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2018.108
Synopsis: 
Aneuploidy risk is present in all pregnancies, however many women in Jamaica are not screened. This may be due to concerns of the patient or physician. Increase in screening may allow for early management and preparation for abnormalities.

Methods: A questionnaire of primarily multiple-choice questions was sent by mail or hand-delivered to obstetricians and gynecologists across the country. The questions concerned demographics, knowledge of screening and diagnostic tests available and test selection.
