What is the goal of the eREACH study?
To understand if web-based delivery of pre-test and/or post-test counseling (with the option to speak with a genetic counselor as needed) can provide easier access to genetic testing, faster results and still have equal outcomes to two counseling sessions with a genetic counselor.
What are the study steps?
- STEP 1: complete study consent and a short survey.
- STEP 2: meet with a genetic counselor in your home by phone or videoconference (Arms A and B) OR complete by web (Arms C and D) and complete a short survey.
- STEP 3: complete your test kit or blood draw (at home or in the clinic).
- STEP 4: meet with a genetic counselor in your home by phone or videoconference (Arms A and C) OR complete by web (Arms B and D) and complete a short survey.
The genetic counselor will share your results with your cancer doctor so they are part of your cancer care.
- All study steps can be done at home and in any state in the US.
- Home visits with the Genetic Counselor (GC) can by done by phone or videoconference.
- If you get assigned to the website option you can still speak with a genetic counselor if you wish.
*There is one additional survey at 6 months, $10.
