Survey: Making Decisions about Genetic Testing

About the Study

The study investigates how people deal with uncertainty following an event that has unclear outcomes. The survey explores adult responses to being offered a genetic test and how they dealt with any uncertainty. The online survey includes a newly developed Uncertainty Management Scale (UMS) based on our years of prior uncertainty research. Knowing more about how people manage uncertainty may be helpful to society.
