Cardiac Genetic Counselling

Cardiac genetic counselling is an important component of healthcare for individuals who have a personal or family history of heart disease, or who are considering genetic testing as part of their healthcare. It provides individuals with a clear understanding of their genetic risks and the available treatment and management options, as well as support and resources to help them cope with the emotional and psychological challenges that may come with genetic testing or a diagnosis of heart disease. If you have concerns about your genetic risks for heart disease, talk to your healthcare provider about accessing cardiac genetic counselling.
