SGO collaboration (new) Genetics Toolkit (Lynch Syndrome/BRCA/variants....)

Genetics Toolkit | SGO

A collaboration of the Society of Gynecologic Oncology, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, the National Society of Genetic Counselors, Bright Pink and Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered (FORCE)

The Society of Gynecologic Oncology has partnered with medical societies and patient advocacy groups to develop a toolkit designed to provide critical, practical information to heath care provers interested in gaining a deeper understanding of the role of genetics in gynecologic cancers. While not written for a lay audience, patients and families will gain an appreciation for the complexity of genetic testing and the challenges providers face every day.

The toolkit is comprised of specific case studies telling an individual woman’s story. Key points are illuminated from each organization’s perspective. Each case history provides references, national guidelines and society statements. A “General Resources” section includes useful tools and websites of interest.
