Family Health History


2005 Family History Workshop - Breakout Session II  Health Impact of Family History Strategies

 

The following framework was proposed for considering the impact of familial risk assessment on specific outcome measurements such as decreased morbidity and mortality and quality of life (QoL).

The diagram shows the proposed framework for considering the impact of familial risk assessment on specific outcome measurements. The diagram reads from left to right. First, Screening by Family History: How to identify and screen individuals based on family history in different settings? Next, Identification of at-risk individuals: What intervention based on what level of risk? How to communicate risk? Barriers to offering/uptake of interventions? Determine whether risk is High or Low. Next, Risk Intervention: How to identify and measure health outcomes? Any unintended impacts? Impact on future generations? The final outcome is Improved Health, Longer Life, and Improved Quality of Life (QoL).
