In this study, published in the October 2005 issue of the Journal of Genetic Counseling (Vol. 14, No. 5, pp. 377-386), the authors applied an existing medical communication coding system to BRCA1 genetic counseling sessions, describe the session dynamics, and explore variation in session communication. The findings support the use of RIAS in genetic counseling research. The results indicate that these BRCA1 sessions were predominantly educational in nature with minimal dialogue devoted to psychosocial issues. They also found that participant gender, presence of a client companion, and counselor identity influence session communication.
