Abstract

Purpose: To determine oncologists' practices and beliefs about genetic testing for hereditary breast and ovarian cancer and the extent to which oncologists are utilizing clinical genetics services. Methods: A survey was mailed to oncologists who treat adult patients in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, orAlaska. Results: Most oncologists (79%) had discussed genetic tests with their patients, and 76% indicated they would like patients considering genetic testing to consult with a genetic counselor. Yet few (19%) indicated their medical practice had the necessary services and staff to offer genetic testing, and only 11% had made referrals to medical genetics or genetic counselors. Conclusion: Most respondents support the use of genetic services, but few have made referrals to genetic counselors. Increased communication between oncologists and genetic counselors may enhance collaboration betweenthese two disciplines.
