Hereditary mutations of the tumour suppressor genes BRCA1 and BRCA2 can lead to an elevated risk of breast cancer. This education explores how to identify affected patients with a family history of cancer, and provides an overview of how Familial Cancer Centres can assist these patients through genetic testing and risk management.

Upon completion of this module the participant should be able to:
  • Identify appropriate patients for referral to familial cancer centres.
  • Undertake a family history relevant to familial cancer.
  • Explain the potential medical prevention options to high risk patients.
  • Describe the psychosocial implications of genetic variation carrier status.

This activity is sponsored by and developed in partnership with Cancer Council Victoria.
Cancer Council Victoria acknowledges the provision of funding by the Victorian Government for this educational activity.
