Suzanne Mahon - Saint Louis University, Missouri, USA

Suzanne Mahon speaks to ecancer at ONS 2019 about how oncology nurses can provide care to hereditary cancer patients and their families. 

She outlines how genetic testing has changed, when patients (and families) should be referred for testing, and how testing can provide recommendations for care. She also explains the current limitations with regards to availability of specialists.

Suzanne concludes by explaining that oncology nurses role in genetic testing is crucial, as they are able to identify families who may benefit from testing and support them through the process.
