Type: Consensus Study
Topics: Select Populations and Health Equity
Boards: Board on the Health of Select Populations, Board on Health Care Services

Activity Description

The Department of Defense asked the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine to convene a committee to examine the relevant medical and scientific literature to determine the evidence base for different types of genetic tests (e.g., predictive, diagnostic, and prognostic) for patient management.  The committee will provide recommendations to advance the development of an adequate evidence base for genetic tests to improve patient care and treatment. Additionally, the committee will recommend a framework for decision making regarding the use of genetic tests in clinical care.
