“GENetic Education Risk Assessment and TEsting Study”
The goal of the GENERATE study is to improve genetic testing and cancer prevention in family members of pancreatic cancer patients with identified genetic mutations (inherited changes). The study will measure how different methods of genetic education increase the rate of genetic testing in these families. This is an investigational study to measure the effects of two methods of genetic education. Participants may elect to undergo genetic testing as part of the study and will be asked to provide saliva samples in a saliva-testing kit. The genetic testing done in this study is FDA approved and will be processed in a Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) certified laboratory. Up to 1,000 participants will be enrolled in this study.
Doxy.me genetic education +/- Color Genomics genetic education
Doxy.me is a HIPAA compliant telemedicine platform that allows clinicians to provide education to remote patients. Genetic education via Doxy.me will consist of a pre-recorded genetic education video and a live interactive video conferencing session with a GENERATE genetic counselor. Genetic education via Color Genomics will consist of both written information and an educational video on the Color Genomics website.
Color Genomics genetic education
Genetic education via Color Genomics will consist of both written information and an educational video on the Color Genomics website.
