The Physician Survey on Cancer Susceptibility Testing was designed to assess physicians' use and knowledge of, and attitudes toward, genetic tests for inherited mutations that are associated with increased cancer risk. The survey was conducted from September, 1999 to March, 2000 and included a nationally representative sample of 1,251 physicians in primary care practices and in specialties involving management of patients with cancer or at high cancer risk. Survey participants completed a questionnaire that asked about the use of genetic tests and about physician characteristics possibly associated with use of tests, including practice arrangement, personal and family history of cancer, race/ethnicity, and various patterns of care factors.
