Washington University Participant Engagement and Cancer Genomic Sequencing Center (WU-PE-CGS) WU-PE-CGS

What's the purpose of this trial?

The overall goal of the WU-PE-CGS is to build a rigorous, scientific evidence base for approaches that direct engagement of cancer patients and post-treatment cancer survivors as participants in cancer research, and to investigate the impact of directly engaging participants in decisions regarding returning of genomic results on participants' health and satisfaction. 

This trial is currently open and accepting patients.

What will happen during the trial?

Participants in this study will be presented with the choice of types of genomic results to receive, and the Engagement Optimization Unit (EOU) will investigate the impact of this intervention on participant knowledge, expectations of benefit, personal utility, and decisional conflict.
