Be a part of a precision medicine research study!
My name is Scott McGrath, and am doctoral candidate in biomedical informatics from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. I'm seeking participants for a national survey to determine how different medical professionals interpret genetic testing results; which is part of my doctoral dissertation.
If you are interested, please find the survey here:
The purpose of this study is to survey different groups of healthcare providers about their experiences, knowledge, and confidence in interpreting genetic test results with patients. The first aim of this study is to evaluate how different healthcare providers, with different levels of education on genetic test results, interpret selected information from genetic test results. The second aim is to determine the confidence and self-efficacy of healthcare providers as they interpret genetic test results with patients. The final aim is to capture healthcare providers’ opinions about, and experiences with, Direct-to-Consumer genetic tests. 
This study is part of a dissertation: Anticipating the Knowledge Gap within the Genomic Pillar of Precision Medicine. It is being conducted through the University of Nebraska at Omaha, 1110 S 67th St, Omaha, NE 68182.
The IRB for this study (206-16-EX) was approved by the University of Nebraska Medical Center IRB. Pertinent questions or concerns about the research, research participants' rights, and/or research-related injuries to participants should be directed to the UNMC IRB, (402) 559-6463, No identifying information outside of employer zip code will be collected.
Questions about this research should be addressed to Scott McGrath, (402) 577-0501,
