Opportunistic Screening for Medically Actionable Secondary Genomic Findings with Julie Sapp, ScM, CGC

  • This webinar will familiarize counselors with the literature devoted to how medically actionable secondary genomic findings are communicated to recipients in both the clinical and research contexts and compare reported outcomes against desired ones such as appropriate uptake of screening, family communication, and cascade testing. Gaps in the literature will be highlighted to identify and highlight areas where genetic counselors can lead formative research efforts to enhance the potential for the return of secondary findings to contribute to a precision medicine approach to healthcare.
