Understanding Genetic Variants Discussion Tool


Nurses support patients through the biomarker testing process and describe possible outcomes that might come from testing. Nurses also translate findings to patients. Use this discussion tool to explain different types of variants identified by biomarker testing using easy-to-understand baking analogies. Analogies are helpful tools to educate patients about complex topics. Also, available for download is the facilitator guide to help when presenting this information in a group setting.
