…to name a few of the inherited heart rhythm disorders, you
have most likely been told that these conditions are potentially
inheritable. This means that other family members may be affected by the
same condition you have been diagnosed with.
The PDF letter template has been provided by Dr. Danna
Spears from the Inheritable Arrhythmia Clinic of Toronto General Hospital. This template is intended as a guide for you to use to notify other members of your family who may be at risk for inheriting the same heart condition you have.
If you have been diagnosed with an inherited heart condition and have had a positive genetic test result then you can use this template and substitute for the medical condition that describes you and the contact information of the
specialist who is treating you.
