Secondary Findings: Take a Second Look with Kathryn Singh, MPH, MS, CGC

  • Exome/genome sequencing has the ability to identify medically actionable incidental, or secondary, findings that are unrelated to the indication for testing.  These results are optional for individuals/families to receive and there are several important points to consider when consenting for genomic testing.  This webinar will review basic information about secondary findings, including recent updates to the ACMG recommended gene list, explore various psychosocial considerations related to secondary findings, and review case examples of real life implications of identification of secondary findings, with an emphasis on potential complexities important for genetic counselors to consider.
