The training below covers the modules required for members of the MDT that have chosen to follow option 1 of the pathway.
Option 1 of the pathway will help you to:
- identify patients likely to have Lynch syndrome
- refer these patients for genetic testing to either:
Each MDT should choose to offer either genetic testing via:
- referring patients to their linked specialised genetics centre
- your mainstreaming service ‘in-house’ (if you have set up one)
The training involves watching four short videos which cover all the different stages of the Lynch syndrome pathway, and then completing an online questionnaire to ensure that the clinician has understood correctly the processes and procedures for testing. In addition, there is a range of supporting documents to help understand this pathway.
The training videos cover:
- Video 1: What is mainstreaming?
- Video 2: Overview of Lynch syndrome
- Video 3: Tumour testing: Identifying patients likely to have Lynch syndrome
- Video 4: Understanding genetic testing, and patient management thereafter

Once you have completed the questionnaires, please email Laura Monje-Garcia, Nurse Practitioner, The St Mark’s Centre for Familial Intestinal Cancer, at LNWH-tr.SMCFIC@nhs.net if you have any questions or comments. She will review your answers and send you the CPD training certificate if you have passed.
