Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


A fundamental tenet of modern genetics is to provide nondirective counseling to patients so that they can make whatever informed decision they feel is most appropriate for them [1]. In our own counseling of patients, we often state that in a complex situation if 100% of patients go "left" or 100% of patients go "right," then we clearly have not done our job. In a pluralistic society, it is to be expected that many patients will hear the same set of facts and make diametrically opposite choices.
