Oncology Peer Review On-The-Go: Relationship Between Medical Oncologists and Genetic Counselors in Prostate Cancer

,

The conversation with Jun Gong, MD, focused on the evolving relationship between oncologists who treat prostate cancer and genetic counselors.

Jun Gong, MD, discussed his perspective piece from the October issue of the journal ONCOLOGY, titled, “An Evolving Relationship Between Medical Oncologists and Genetic Counselors in Prostate Cancer.” Gong, a practicing medical oncologist who specializes in the treatment of genitourinary cancers at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, commented on a review article that was previously examined on this podcast with Alexandra Sokolova, MD, titled, “Germline Testing in Prostate Cancer: When and Who to Test.”

The review article focuses on the treatment implications of germline testing and how it has become more commonplace. Gong’s perspective applauds Sokolova and her colleagues for their work and expands on the necessary relationship between medical oncologists and genetic counselors to effectively treat patients with prostate cancer.
