What are the required components of pre- and post-test counseling?
Prenatal care providers are faced with a myriad of decisions about how to offer genetic screening and testing in ways that are appropriate to their patient population and their workflow. Among the critical issues brought to the forefront of rapidly advancing genetic and genomic technologies is the importance of pre- and post-test counseling. This document is a synthesis of proceedings of a workshop sponsored by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics, and the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine, on January 24-25, 2017, during which invited experts discussed required components of pre- and post-test counseling and associated concerns in the provision of prenatal care.
