Post-Test Follow-Up

Slide 16

September 2011

This information could potentially be overwhelming for some families. Take time to acknowledge how they are reacting to test results and encourage them to explore their reactions with you.

Additionally, offer support services when they are available. Sometimes families find that they are interested in contacting these services after some time has passed since the initial results disclosure. There are 2 advocacy/support organizations available for chromosome anomalies: Unique and Chromosome Disorder Outreach. Both welcome contact from families with microdeletion/microduplications found by microarray. Also, there may be groups available for specific syndromes depending on your patient’s test results.
