Oncology nurse/patient navigators who participate in this BRIDGE Symposium will develop a working knowledge of cancer genetics/genomics. Navigators can then effectively educate patients and advocate for appropriate referrals to genetic professionals, ensuring suitable access to germline and tissue testing.
The role of Navigators as Genetic Extenders will be proposed, ultimately to enhance cancer care for patients and their families. The current state of the science and near future directions in cancer genetics/genomics will be addressed by a multidisciplinary faculty that includes genetics nurses, advanced practice nurses, certified genetic counselors, and researchers.
