Supporting Precision Medicine with Genetic Testing
PART 1: Understanding the Complexities of Genetic Testing
In this episode, we take a look at the challenges of managing complex cancer diagnoses and treatments with the help of genetic and genomic testing. Meagan Farmer is a Master's trained Genetic Counselor and provides an overview of the differences between genetic and genomic testing and what physicians are looking for when ordering a test. She also highlights some of the challenges with the massive amount of genetic data that comes from the testing and how that needs to be interpreted by physicians… and how overwhelming that can be.
