This paper presents an overview of predictive genetic testing in Australia and reviews key literature regarding the complexity of the decision to undertake predictive genetic testing, including concerns about post-test genetic discrimination. Particular attention is given to predictive testing involving inherited neuro- degenerative conditions and familial cancers. Previous research undertaken by the author4 including selected findings from the Consumer Study within the Australian Genetic Discrimination Project (GDP) 5 are presented and discussed.
