Genetic counseling is the act of helping people to understand and to adapt to the medical, psychological and familial consequences of a particular genetic condition.
This event is essential before and after any genetic testing to ensure that the patient (or their relatives and / or legal representatives) understands the genetic testing procedure as well as its utility, limitations, advantages and disadvantages. Only after receiving the correct genetic counseling, a patient (or its relatives) must decide, in complete freedom, whether to undergo genetic testing and must give its written consent for that purpose.
