A goal of whole-gene sequencing (WGS) is to provide clinicians with data that can support diagnostic and treatment guidance not possible before; primary care clinicians are now able to use it to educate and counsel patients regarding disease risks and treatment options, so that patients and families can participate in the decision-making process to facilitate optimal care. The purpose of this article is to educate and equip primary care clinicians to understand and implement clinical practice guidelines and to guide decision-making involving WGS on the part of patients undergoing breast cancer treatment.
This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of primary care health care professionals who will treat patients with or at risk for breast cancer.
After completing the activity, the participant should be better able to:
Summarize familial whole-genome sequencing genetic mutations associated with breast cancer
Describe evidence-based screening and treatment recommen-dations for clinicians and patients alike
