Abstract

In hereditary cancers, family-communication on genetics is crucial for family members’ decision making about genetic risk assessment. Healthcare-providers have an important role in supporting family-communication but this is still limited and unclear. The study aims to explore how healthcare-providers address family-communication with mutation carriers and how this may affect mutation carriers’ decision to communicate about genetic risk to family members.
