Is your patient planning a pregnancy or in early pregnancy? This is the ideal time to discuss reproductive carrier screening (RCS) with them.
The 3-gene RCS can identify couples at high risk of having a child with cystic fibrosis, spinal muscular atrophy, or fragile X syndrome – three of the most common familial disorders in Australia.
At Sonic Genetics, our pre-test education course for patients aims to complement the conversation doctors have with their patients about making an informed choice regarding RCS. You can find more information about the course at www.sonicgenetics.com.au/patient/test-information/rcs/carrier-screening-online-patient-course.
For patients who choose to test with Sonic Genetics and receive results indicating a high risk of having an affected child, we offer post-test genetic counselling with a doctor’s referral at no cost to the patient.
