Johann de Bono: And my privilege to introduce Kim Chi from Vancouver, who’s going to talk about a really key area, how to read a genomic testing report. Kim.
Kim Chi: Thank you, Johann. And thank you, Silke and Aurelius, for inviting me to another fantastic meeting. I feel like I’m emerging from the COVID hibernation. It’s great to see all the colleagues and have further discussions around science.
And thank you for asking me to talk about how to read a genomics report, which is at its fundamental level, relatively a mundane task. You just read the report. But I think of course behind it is a lot of complexity, which I think we all need to appreciate. And this is why I’m being asked to specifically address this topic.
These are my disclosures. And then I also wanted to thank Dr. Tracy Tucker and Dr. Intan Schrader. They’re with our genomics… our medical genetics department at my institution. And I also wanted to highlight them just to say that this is… We’re expanding our multidisciplinary prostate cancer care team. We’ve got nuclear medicine. We’ve got pathologists. But more and more as we do more genomic testing for our patients, more widespread and also mainstreamed where the oncologists order the genetic testing and are responsible for the test, we need the assistance of our colleagues.
And it is important because as oncologists ordering this test, we actually admit to really limited formal training in the interpretation of tumor…
