If we are moving towards an era where this is the new standard of care, what are patients' responsibilities? We’d like you to consider these topics for discussion during this week’s #HCHLITSS twee chat?
Q1. What literacy skills are necessary for patients to understand the results of genetic tests so that they might appropriately be applied to shared clinical decision-making?
Q2. Insurance companies are not covering genetic testing as usual and customary treatment. What impact does this have as America continues to work towards health equity? Is preventive mastectomy only available to those with enough financial resources for genetic testing?
