The Genetic Education for Men or GEM study, is a clinical trial evaluating educational tools for men from families in which a BRCA1/2 gene mutation has been identified. In order to identify untested men from BRCA1/2 families, we are seeking women who have received positive BRCA1/2 test results and have at least one untested male relative.
The GEM study is a randomized trial, evaluating a web-based, individually tailored educational tool designed for men from hereditary breast ovarian cancer families. Men who choose to participate will be randomized into one of two treatment groups by chance. Participants will be randomized to receive either an individually tailored web-based genetic education intervention based on their family history, or standard resources about BRCA1/2 testing.
