Gene Talk: What do we expect from Families and their Doctors?

Gene Talk Survey: What do we expect from Families and their Doctors? is a US national study sponsored and funded by the National Institute of Health. The purpose of the study is to collect thoughts, opinions, and beliefs from patients and providers about who has responsibility for sharing genetic risk information within families, and when it is morally acceptable not to share information. This mailed survey will present 12 short stories about different ways providers and patients might react to situations that might involve sharing genetic information with family members. Each brief story is followed by 2 questions. The entire survey takes about 15 minutes to complete. Oregon Health Sciences University. Posted 06-02-09.
