The rise of the genetic counseling profession in China.

The rapid development of genetic and genomic technologies has greatly boosted medical genetic researches and clinical services worldwide. Since last century, genetic counseling in the United States has helped individuals and families understand, accept, and cope with their genetic issues. This fledging profession, which is in essence a branch of social work, emerged in China relatively late but has rapidly grown over the last few years. We believe that genetic counseling will continue to play a pivotal role...

A Randomized Controlled Intervention to Promote Readiness to Genetic Counseling for Breast Cancer Survivors.

Breast cancer (BC) survivors with a genetic mutation are at higher risk for subsequent cancer; knowing genetic risk status could help survivors make decisions about follow-up screening. Uptake of genetic counseling and testing (GC/GT) to determine BRCA status is low among high risk BC survivors. This study assessed feasibility, acceptability, and preliminary efficacy of a newly developed psychoeducational intervention (PEI) for GC/GT.

Genetic counseling, 2030: An on-demand service tailored to the needs of a price conscious, genetically literate, and busy world.

The practice of genetic counseling is going to be impacted by the public's expectation that goods, services, information, and experiences happen on demand, wherever and whenever people want them. Building from trends that are currently taking shape, this article looks just over a decade into the future-to 2030-to provide a description of how the field of genetics and genetic counseling will be changed, as well as advice for genetic counselors for how to prepare. We build from the prediction that a large por...

Genetic counseling for consumer-driven whole exome and whole genome sequencing: A commentary on early experiences.

Counseling after consumer-driven whole exome sequencing (WES) and whole genome sequencing (WGS) presents challenges for genetic counselors as availability of this testing increases. There are no standard practice guidelines and limited resources for genetic counselors in this area, but consumer demand for counseling and data interpretation exists and is likely to grow along with testing opportunities. In this paper, we comment upon our experiences as three independent, private practice genetic counselors wh...

Prenatal genetic counselors' practices and confidence level when counseling on cancer risk identified on expanded carrier screening.

Genetics and genetic counseling in psychiatry: Results from an opinion survey of professionals and users.

The heritability of several psychiatric disorders is high, and specific at-risk variants have been identified. Therefore, genetic counseling and genetic testing can be prescribed to some psychiatric patients, but these services are not standardized for most of the population. The aims of the study were to gather opinions from mental health professionals and users regarding (a) the genetics of psychiatric disorders and (b) the usefulness of a genetic counseling unit in psychiatry.

Genetic counseling, genetic testing, and risk perceptions for breast and colorectal cancer: Results from the 2015 National Health Interview Survey.

We examined what proportion of the U.S. population with no personal cancer history reported receiving either genetic counseling or genetic testing for cancer risk, and also the association of these behaviors with cancer risk perceptions. We used data from the 2015 National Health Interview Survey. Objective relative risk scores for breast (women) and colorectal (men and women) cancer risk were generated for individuals without a personal history of cancer. Participants' risk perceptions were compared with t...

Communication pitfalls in interpreted genetic counseling sessions.

The impact of language interpretation on interactive communication in genetic counseling sessions is not well studied. We sought to determine whether interpretation affects communication in genetic counseling sessions using communication analysis. With a sample of pregnant patients of advanced maternal age, we audiotaped, analyzed, and compared seven Spanish-speaking patients with limited-English proficiency to seven English-speaking patients on length of session, English words spoken, and number of questio...

Does family communication matter? Exploring knowledge of breast cancer genetics in cancer families.

Knowledge of breast cancer genetics is critical for those at increased hereditary risk who must make decisions about breast cancer screening options. This descriptive study explored theory-based relationships among cognitive and emotional variables related to knowledge of breast cancer genetics in cancer families. Participants included first-degree relatives of women with breast cancer who had received genetic counseling and testing. Study participants themselves did not have breast cancer and had not recei...

The Impact of Insurance Coverage on the Prenatal Genetic Counseling Process: An Exploration of Genetic Counselors' Experiences with TRICARE.

The prenatal genetic counseling process may be influenced by the patient's insurance coverage for both prenatal testing and termination. Major commercial insurance providers have different policies. TRICARE is the United States Department of Defense health program for uniformed service members. TRICARE provides coverage to approximately 9.4 million beneficiaries, including: health plans, special programs, prescriptions and dental plans. TRICARE's covered medical expenses are outlined in their policies, incl...

Rapid clinical exome sequencing in a pediatric ICU: Genetic counselor impacts and challenges.

Exome sequencing (ES) has revolutionized molecular diagnosis in children with genetic disease over the past decade. However, exome sequencing in the inpatient setting has traditionally been discouraged, in part due to an increased risk of providers failing to retrieve and act upon results, as many patients are discharged before results return. The development of rapid turn-around-times (TATs) for genomic testing has begun to shift this paradigm. Rapid exome sequencing (rES) is increasingly being used as a d...

Exploring Predictors of Genetic Counseling and Testing for Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer: Findings from the 2015 U.S. National Health Interview Survey.

Despite efforts to increase the availability of clinical genetic testing and counseling for Hereditary Breast and Ovarian (HBOC)-related cancers, these services remain underutilized in clinical settings. There have been few efforts to understand the public's use of cancer genetic services, particularly for HBOC-related cancers. This analysis is based on data from the 2015 National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), a U.S.-based nationwide probability sample, to better understand the public's use of HBOC-relate...

Challenges of infertility genetic counseling: Impact on counselors' personal and professional lives.

Infertility genetic counselors (GCs) work with patients struggling to become pregnant who desire genetic testing of embryos and preconception genetic testing or carrier screening. Because personal and professional challenges have not been examined in this relatively new genetic counseling specialty, we investigated the difficulties infertility GCs face in their professional roles. Past and present infertility GCs in patient-facing roles were recruited through the National Society of Genetic Counselors. Purp...

Role and practice evolution for genetic counseling in the genomic era: The experience of Australian and UK genetics practitioners.

Facilitating informed decision-making regarding genetic testing is a core component of genetic counseling practice.

Benchmarking of a checklist for the identification of familial risk for breast and ovarian cancers in a prospective cohort.

The detection of deleterious germline mutations in BRCA1 and BRCA2 considerably influences the clinical management of healthy and diseased carriers. Therefore, the identification of persons at risk who could uptake genetic counseling and testing is pivotal. We developed a checklist with validated criteria to improve the identification, and prospectively evaluate the incidence, of familial cancer history in 5091 breast cancer patients. The rate of 30.4% of patients at high genetic risk underpins the demand f...

Patient perspectives on the process and outcomes of psychiatric genetic counseling: An "Empowering Encounter".

Genetic counseling (GC) for individuals with mental illness (MI) has been shown to improve patient outcomes, such as increased empowerment and self-efficacy. However, we do not understand how the process of GC results in these improvements or what aspects of the process are critical. In this qualitative study, we explored the process and outcome of psychiatric GC from the patient's perspective. Ten Canadian adults with a diagnosed MI were interviewed prior to, and 1 month following, psychiatric GC. Intervi...

Patient decision-making and the role of the prenatal genetic counselor: An exploratory study.

Despite much theory about how genetic counseling facilitates prenatal decision-making, there are limited data regarding patients' perceptions of the process and the role of the genetic counselor (GC). Our aim in this study was to explore patients' perceptions of their prenatal genetic counseling session, with a focus on their relationship with their GC and how factors inside and outside the session influenced their decision-making about amniocentesis. We performed a qualitative study with patients who had s...

Current genetic counseling practice in the United States following positive non-invasive prenatal testing for sex chromosome abnormalities.

The purpose of this study was to describe current genetic counseling practice in the United States following a non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) result positive for a sex chromosome abnormality (SCA). Screening for SCAs can be confounded by confined placental mosaicism, natural loss of the X chromosome from maternal cells during aging, and undiagnosed maternal SCA or copy number variant (CNV). Furthermore, with the exception of 45,X, individuals with SCAs usually have no ultrasound or postnatal findings....
