Re-contacting in mainstreaming genetics

Published: 1 October 2014

Professor Anneke Lucassen is contributing to a new study examining the implications of when and how NHS healthcare professionals re-contact patients with new genetic information that may impact their health or that of their family.

Professor Susan Kelly from the University of Exeter is leading the project. The project involves partners from Cardiff University (Angus Clarke), the University of Southampton (Anneke Lucassen) and the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital (Peter Turnpenny).

The study will contribute to the understanding of implications of rapid innovation in genomics for patients, families and healthcare professionals. It will also provide evidence based recommendations regarding communication between healthcare professional and patients, potentially leading to the development of an ethical and professional framework regarding re-contacting patients.
