Ethical Considerations in Genetic Testing
Do you have the correct forms set up in your nutrigenetics practice for informed consent? What do the current protection acts offer to protect your patients' genetic information? Are you taking extra precautions to protect the genetic information you have at your fingertips? This webinar will focus on the ethics, protections, and laws surrounding the ethical handling of genetic information, and protection of that genetic information. To protect your patients and yourself!
Upon successful completion of this one-hour course, the participant should be able to:
  • Clearly explain the 2 federal laws surrounding protection of genetic information.

  • Set up the appropriate forms to clearly inform patients about genetic testing, protections, and ethics, before completing their genetic test.

  • Properly protect genetic information once results are delivered to the provider.

Note: This session meets the RD requirement for a unit of "ETHICS" during a 5 year renewal period.
