Hereditary Cancer Clinic

Provides genetic risk assessment, counselling and genetic testing for Albertans and their families who are affected by or at risk for a hereditary cancer syndrome.

This clinics service goals are to facilitate cancer management decisions, and recommend optimal screening and cancer prevention strategies for affected individuals and high risk families.

The consultation service begins with an assessment of a patients' personal and family history for features of hereditary cancer syndromes.

Genetic Counselling is then provided to patients who meet the criteria, in order to share genetic risk information, discuss the benefits, risks, limitations of genetic testing (if indicated for the patient and/or at-risk relatives), and to discuss recommendations for cancer management and surveillance.

Telehealth is available for Alberta residents.
