Résumé

 

Genetic tests not only affect the individual adversely, but also family members. In this context it is fair for family physicians to be weary of the effect these tests can have over family members. Conversely family doctors, without the proper Continuing Medical Education, may find themselves ordering such tests too liberally, once it is the patient who request them, believing they are respecting the individual’s autonomy. Whilst tests may sound enticing to patients, the impact they can have on their personal lives may not be divulged fairly and squarely by someone trying to market the test. KEYWORDS Family physicians, genetic testing and screening, counselling.
