Meeting the challenge

Healthcare practitioners need to access the right test at the right time and be in a position to correctly interpret the test result to identify the right treatment option. Therefore, it is important to consider the training needs of all clinicians so that they feel empowered by the additional information rather than overwhelmed by it

Educated and empowered patients need to understand that a test may be necessary to decide on the right treatment, one that respects genetic difference

 A patient-centred structure for risk communication should be developed in order to enhance patients’ awareness, competence and adherence to medicatio between people and molecular differences between diseases
