Using Genetics and Genomics for Cancer Risk Identification - J. O'Daniel - 20170111
This lecture discusses clinical cancer genetics, including appropriate ordering of genetic tests, management of patients with genetic mutations, and recognition of high risk families and familial cancer syndromes. This presentation will also discuss the genetics associated with several hereditary cancers, including breast, ovarian, and colon cancers, Lynch Syndrome, familial adenomatous polyposis, and others. Learning Outcomes: • Differentiate the purpose and implications for tumor (somatic) versus hereditary (germline) genetic testing. • Recognize typical indicators for hereditary cancer risk in terms of personal and family history. • Describe several benefits to learning about the presence of a hereditary cancer syndrome in terms of treatment as well as for screening and prevention. This lecture was presented as a part of the RN and Allied Health Series.
