Incidental Findings from Genetic Tests : exploring the ethical issues and implications for practice


This project aims to gain an empirical and ethical insight into the experiences and attitudes of healthcare users and professionals towards Incidental Findings (IFs) from genetic testing, using both qualitative and quantitative research methods. This together with a systematic review of relevant literature will provide novel insights into the practical and ethical issues surrounding IFs in genetic practice and allow the development of guidance on how practice should evolve as advancing technology increases the likelihood of IFs.
