June 21, 2023 | Clinical Cancer Genomics "Working Group"
The technologies that produce genetic information and contribute to the evidence base related to genomically-informed care are rapidly evolving, as well as the process of identifying, interpreting and developing personalized risk management plans related to heritable risk factors for cancer in a given individual or family is a complex interprofessional process.
Genetic testing for cancer risk can raise considerable psychological, social and ethical considerations. The central purpose of Working Group case conferencing is to address challenges and decisions directly related to patient care for clinicians with established genetic cancer risk assessment (GCRA) practices at City of Hope and in community-based settings. Presenting clinicians summarize the relevant features and key issues or challenges related to cases seen for genetic cancer risk assessment and testing for hereditary predisposition. Knowledge and skills are shared collaboratively through open discussion among interdisciplinary participants to develop strategies for cancer risk assessment and genetic testing, test results interpretation, development of individualized cancer risk surveillance and management recommendations and patient candidacy for research protocols, and to discuss health insurance, patient and family communication, bioethics, patient-related psychosocial issues and barriers to care.
Physicians, Physician Assistants, Genetic Counselors, Master's or PhD in Genetics or Advanced Practice Nurses, and Geneticists.
- Identify tools, strategies, and resources used to establish differential diagnoses and risk assessment strategies for patients seen through the Cancer Screening & Prevention Program and affiliate community-based programs.
- Recognize evidence-based guidelines and resources for developing personalized cancer risk management plans for patients.
- Formulate and share questions and suggestions related to specific cases discussed during and/or after sessions with other participants and faculty.
- Discuss possible barriers and biases which may impact patient care (i.e., race, ethnicity, language, gender identity/orientation, age, socioeconomic status, attitudes, feelings, or other characteristics).
