Pre-Test Genetic Education and Remote Genetic Counseling in Communicating Tumor Profiling Results to Patients With Advanced Cancer

Overview

About this study

This research trial studies how well pre-test genetic education and remote genetic counseling works in communicating tumor profiling results to patients with advanced cancer. Web-based genetic education before receiving tumor profiling results and remote genetic counseling for patients with potential germline mutations may increase genetic knowledge and reduce distress for patients with advanced cancer.
