Support model for young women who are BRCA1/2 carriers

Young women aged between 18 – 40 years who have a BRCA1/2 gene change that increases their risk of breast and ovarian cancer, have many decisions to make regarding reducing their breast and ovarian cancer risk through screening, medication or surgery.

This project aims to develop an evidence-based model to support these young women throughout this life stage while making decisions about reducing their cancer risk.
