These proceedings of a workshop presented to the Institute of Medicine's (IOM) National Cancer Policy Forum on March 30, 2007, are the result of forum discussions about genetic testing and counseling at its meetings on June 16 and October 30, 2006. Those discussions, led by forum members Betty Ferrell and Patricia Ganz, noted that genetic testing and counseling are becoming more complex and important for informing patients and families of risks and benefits of certain courses of action, and yet organized expert programs are in short supply.
