Genetic Counselor Information Needs & Current Library Services for Genetic Counselors
MetadataShow full item record
Genetic counseling is a unique, rapidly growing field with increasingly diverse practice settings. It spans the information-dense world of genomics, precision medicine, and multiple clinical specialties. The purpose of the genetic counseling information needs survey was to gain a broad understanding of the information that genetic counselors and genetic counseling students need in their work and education. Additionally, we explored the resources these individuals use to find information and the barriers that stand in the way of getting information. In the second survey, services and resources currently provided by libraries in support of genetic counseling were captured. The intent is to elucidate gaps between the needed information and existing resources/services.
