Will you inform me of any findings from the samples?
We need to collect and test samples from many people before we can draw meaningful conclusions. The research using the information you provide could take some years to complete.
We will not be providing you with personal results, unless they have important implications for your health or the health of your relatives. If our research uncovers any such information, we will seek approval from Cancer Council Victoria's Human Research Ethics Committee to contact you, or the members of your family affected by the information, and offer access to the information. You, or your family members, may decline to receive the information. Please note, the analyses may not be conducted for several years.
Participation in the study should not alter your use of routine health care or health screenings in any way.
We send regular newsletters to keep you up to date with study progress.
