Abstract

Genetic and genomic information has the potential to improve patient care and outcomes by improving clinicians' ability to identify patients at increased risk of disease and, in some cases, personalize treatment and management. However, many clinicians report that they feel unprepared and lack confidence in talking about genomics with their patients. By focusing on family history information and knowing when and how to refer to genetic experts, clinicians can take meaningful steps to improve integration of genetics into patient care.
