Skills of communicators
Dr Rachel Iredale, Prof Lesley Fallowfield, Carol Maddock, Maureen Gilbert, Cathie Lockenwitz, Francisca Bach Kolling-Dandrieu and Roswitha Britz discuss communicating effictively.
Who are the health professionals generally involved in communicating genetic risk in your country?
Does it vary and are they the right people?
What do you think are the skills needed?
How do we get people to be better communicators if 'cook book' manuals don’t work?

We would like to thank the following patient organisations for their help:

The Danish Breast Cancer Organisation

The Federation of Breast Cancer in Spain

and the Dutch breast cancer site
& (The advocacy site for hereditary breast and ovarian cancer)
