Dr. Hamilton presents at MSK CME 2022 course on Hereditary Cancer Genetics: Incorporation into Clinical Care
Dr. Hamilton presented on the topic of ‘Psychosocial Considerations in the Adoption of Genomic Testing Innovations’ as part of a new CME course offered by her colleagues in the MSK Clinical Genetics Service.
Dr. Kenneth Offit and Dr. Jada Hamilton were awarded an NHGRI R01 grant, “Digital Technology to Enhance Access to and Effectiveness of Cancer Genetic Counseling”
With this new project, Drs. Offit and Hamilton will assess the impact of a new cancer genetic counseling model that leverages the increasing digitization of healthcare on psychosocial, behavioral, and implementation outcomes. This will be achieved through a digitally-enhanced intervention to promote cascade testing for the at-risk relatives of probands with pathogenic/likely pathogenic variants, and the optimal follow-up care of those with a variant of uncertain significance.
