AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

How does genetic literacy influence and inform patient engagement, expectations and healthcare utilization efforts?

Genetic literacy can be defined as one's ability to understand concepts important to the use of personal genetic information. We propose that All of Us participants complete brief baseline survey items related to genetic literacy as part of the Participant-Provided Information (PPI; The Basics). We would explore the association between genetic literacy and outcomes such as patient engagement in All of Us, expectations about participating in All of Us, and healthcare utilization.
