Welcome to the
Genetics Resource Hub

The field of genetics is constantly evolving as new data emerges linking genes and disease. As your partner in genetic testing, we’re working to gather the most up-to-date resources in one central location: this Genetics Resource Hub.

The hub also includes resources to help educate the rest of your patients’ healthcare team—and your patients themselves.

This resource page includes:

Referral letters to reach more patients

You see patients all day long, but what about the patients that are not getting referred to you or another genetics professional?

We have developed template letters that you can share with ordering clinicians in your clinic or institution that highlight the importance of genetic testing, the types of patients who should be referred, and space to add a personal note and your contact information.

Clinician videos

 

As genetic counselors and clinicians work closer and closer together, we have partnered with OncLive to bring you several videos to help clinicians understand all aspects of genetic testing for breast cancer.
