CE OVERVIEW REVIEWS     
Objectives:
Direct-to-consumer genetic testing is a relatively new form of genetic testing that allows consumers to collect a sample of their DNA, mail it to a company and receive a report on their possible future genetic risk of disease. However, consumers may receive confusing or unexpected results and may not receive competent guidance from a genetic health professional. This module provides an overview of the types of genetic testing available and the types available through direct-to-consumer genetic test companies and also discusses the advantages and drawbacks of DTC testing. Healthcare professionals in all practice settings will play a role in the delivery of genetic information to the public.?Direct-to-consumer genetic testing is a relatively new form of genetic testing that allows consumers to collect a sample of their DNA, mail it to a company and receive a report on their possible future genetic risk of disease.
