Direct-to-consumer genetic testing: decision support tool for clinicians.

An introduction to the decision support tool

Direct-to-consumer genetic testing, commonly called DTC testing, is genetic testing that takes place outside the usual healthcare system. DTC tests are ordered via the internet, without necessarily involving any health professional. However, some patients who are thinking about buying a DTC test, or have already used one, will visit their doctor to discuss this and obtain advice.

If you are a health professional, this simple tool will help you to understand and advise patients about the many issues inherent in the use of such services. Individuals considering using a DTC test may also find this tool useful.
