“It seems like podcasts really are a good way for people to learn about even a complex topic like this,” says Stacy Loeb, MD, MSc.
In this video, Stacy Loeb, MD, MSc, and Veda Giri, MD, discuss the findings of the paper, “Usefulness of podcasts to provide public education on prostate cancer genetics,” which was published in Prostate Cancer and Prostatic Diseases (https://rdcu.be/c3UEl).New episodes of the podcast discussed in the study will drop on Tuesdays (https://open.spotify.com/show/4FYxW2zUgJmW8wkVbiOXBb?si=dca177dda31443f6).
Giri is division chief of Clinical Cancer Genetics for Yale Cancer Center and Smilow Cancer and assistant director of Clinical Cancer Genetics for Yale Cancer Center, New Haven, Connecticut. Loeb is a professor in the departments of urology and population health at the NYU Grossman School of Medicine, New York City, New York.
Giri: Yes, and we're hopeful that that kind of data, when you actually study it, supports the potential for expanding on utilization of podcasts for dissemination of information about genetic testing for prostate cancer, for hereditary cancer testing, potentially even across different languages so that we really can start to bring this across populations. I think our data support that, and so we're very excited about that.
