HealthSeq Outcomes Paper Published

The HealthSeq team reported the initial outcomes data from their longitudinal study of ostensibly healthy adults who underwent whole genome sequencing (WGS). The paper, “Psychological and Behavioural Impact of Returning Personal Results from Whole-GenomeSsequencing: The HealthSeq Project.” in the European Journal of Human Genetics, described outcomes one week and 6 months after participants received their genomic results. This paper complements earlier publications on participant’s motivations, concerns and preferences and the impact of genomic counseling on informed decision-making by HealthSeq participants.
