Description

Summary

To assess the feasibility, impact, and participant satisfaction of offering Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) certified genetic testing as part of clinical care for People with Parkinson's disease (PWP).

Official Title

Parkinson's Foundation: PD Generation: Mapping the Future of Parkinson's Disease

Details

The purpose of this study is to evaluate how offering Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) certified genetic testing for Parkinson's Disease (PD) genes to people with Parkinson's Disease impacts clinical care and potential enrollment in clinical trials. This multi-center study will assess the impact and satisfaction of the mode of genetic counseling by comparing counseling conducted by a clinician versus centralized genetic counseling conducted through Indiana University. The study will also assess knowledge gained by administering a knowledge survey pre- and post-genetic testing. All genetic test results will be returned to participants through a genetic counseling visit.
