Trial of Strategies to Communicate Genetic Information to Different Ethnic Subpopulations

Trial ID: NCT03023735

Purpose

The goal of this study is to better understand how clinicians give genetic risk information to patients from multi-ethnic groups and how patients understand this information and remember it and act upon it. In addition investigators want to know how to better communicate with patients about complex health issues across the health literacy divide and communication gap that exists between doctors and their patients.
