Summary

This randomized clinical trial studies how well online genetics educational video with or without pre- and/or post-telephone genetics counseling works in assessing cancer-risk distress in patients with triple negative breast cancer. Online genetic education and telephone genetic counseling may help the doctors learn the stress a person feels about their risk of cancer.

Description

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To test the effects of online genetic education versus telephone genetic counseling on cancer-risk distress.

SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To test the effects of online genetic education versus telephone genetic counseling on testing completion rates.

II. To evaluate the role of psychological and social variables in women's reactions to genetic testing for ovarian cancer risk with variable education strategies.

III. To consider the effects of variations of genetic education/counseling on genetic knowledge, satisfaction with the decision to undergo testing, and family communication.

OUTLINE: Patients are randomized into 1 of 4 arms.

ARM A: Patients watch genetic testing online educational video and receive genetic testing online test results report.

ARM B: Patients watch genetic testing online educational video, receive genetic testing online test results report, and post-telephone genetic counseling.

ARM C: Patients watch genetic testing online educational video, receive pre-telephone genetic counseling, genetic testing online test results report, and post-telephone genetic counseling.

ARM D: Patients watch genetic testing online educational video, receive pre-telephone genetic counseling, and genetic testing online test results report.
