Abstract:
Influences for Risk Reduction Surgery After BRCA Testing
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2011
Author:Wong, Melissa E., BS

Title:BSN
[22nd International Nursing Research Congress - Research Presentation] Purpose: This is a literature review presentation that compares some of reasons why women would choose to undergo risk reducing salpingo-oophorectomy (RRSO) to reduce their risk for ovarian cancer after having genetic testing for BRCA 1 and 2 mutations. Some of these factors include being in a peri-menopausal state, having a family history of ovarian cancer, and the perceived risk of developing ovarian cancer. The limitations of BRCA genetic testing are also considered. Methods: Literature review of current information about influences that affect why women choose to undergo risk reduction surgery. Results: Women who are in a peri-menopausal state, have a family history of ovarian cancer, and a perceived risk of ovarian cancer can all influence a woman's decision making process. Conclusion: This review can aid healthcare providers to assess different motivations for risk reducing surgery and identify areas where patients may need additional education about risk reducing surgery.
