BRCA toolkit


formThe resources below have been developed to support implementation of BRCA testing through routine oncology appointments. We call this Mainstreaming Cancer Genetics (MCG).

This model of gene testing has been successfully implemented at the Royal Marsden. Results of an evaluation of participating clinicians and patients have been overwhelmingly positive.

The resources have been developed for use at the Royal Marsden. We hope that they will serve as a useful template for other hospitals wishing to implement a similar service.

Anyone can complete the training resources. Upon completion, you will be able to download a certificate.
