Supporting Precision Medicine with Genetic Testing
PART 2: Exploring the Gaps in Patient Care
In this episode, our guest, Meagan Farmer, a Master’s Trained Genetic Counselor, discusses several key gaps in patient care, including how well patients understand what they are consenting to when getting a test, the need for long term review of changes in medical knowledge that may impact a patients’ initial findings, how public opinion and consumerism are affecting the demand for personal genome profiling, and some of the identified disparities that need to be addressed. Special thanks to our guest, Meagan Farmer, for sharing her time and expertise with us.
