One in ten individuals has a family history of cancer that needs further investigation.
Do you know which of your patients these are?
Genetic testing can help prevent or diagnose cancer early, but not everyone is a good candidate.
Do you know which of your patients are likely to benefit from genetic testing?
Individuals with increased cancer risk should have earlier and more frequent screening.
How do you identify which of your patients would benefit and what the screening schedule should be?
This online program can help you answer all of these questions!
This on-demand, interactive program consists of 11 modules on cancer genetics that are 15 minutes, case-based and help build clinical skills and impact patient care. Topics include assessing cancer risk using family history information, managing patients with increased cancer risk, genetic testing for breast cancer, genetic testing for colon cancer, and many others. You can earn continuing medical education (CME) and continuing nursing education (CE) credit for each module for free.
In each module, you will have the opportunity to:
- Practice applying genetic information to realistic cases
- Assess the utility of genetic information
- Learn about the value of genetic assessment or genetic testing to patient care
