Survey about Motivations and Barriers to Talking with Family Members about Inherited Cancer Risk

About the Study

This study aims to understand the different goals and motivations individuals with an inherited gene mutation have when talking about their genetic cancer risk with family members in a conversation. To participate, please email the study coordinator at [email protected] for the link to the online survey.

What the Study Involves

For this study, participants will email the study coordinator for a link to an online survey that will take approximately 25-35 minutes to complete. Participants will be asked questions about talking with their family members about their genetic cancer risk. They will be asked to discuss the goals and motivations they would have in these conversations with their family members. There is no cost to participate. This research is considered minimal risk, meaning that study risks are the same as the risks you face in daily life.
