How does it work?

There are three main parts to our resource center: audience, category, and search. Additionally, we include references to the format of each resource to give you different ways to digest information.

Audience

This is the type of user for you are gathering information. We have broken this down into three groups: patient, provider, and advocate.

Patient:  Patient resources will be those that provide information a patient might want or need to know going into, during, or post a genetic appointment with their doctor.

Provider: Provider resources have been curated with a caretaker in mind. As such, these are resources that include information caring for a patient and might include technical medical information. This audience might be appropriate for in-home caretakers as well as in-office medical providers.

Advocate: Advocate resources are those that provide information on general support for those who might be dealing with a variety of genetic medical conditions.

For example, you might be searching for information for a pregnant family member who might want more information on the process of genetic screening. This would put your search in the “patient” audience. Alternatively, if you were looking for information on what you might need to do as a family member to support said person, you might look in the “advocate” audience. And finally, if you’re an in-home caretaker who is looking medical studies to learn more about genetics and pregnancy, you might look in the “provider” audience.

Category

Categories are used to help narrow down resources by the stage in the genetic process to which a resource might apply. We have broken down our process into five categories: pretest, during genetic evaluation, other, post test, and revisiting genetics.

Each of these categories also has an icon associated with it. As you browse resources, you will see the icon associated with the category to indicate the individual resource’s categorization.

Search

Our resource center includes a search specifically for resources. As such you are able to search for keywords across all our resources if you simple aren’t sure which category or audience you might be looking for.

Format

Each resource will fall under one of three types of formats: read, watch, or listen. This is an indication of how you might “consume” this information – via text, video, or audio.
