Genomics in the NHS: A clinician’s guide to genomic testing for rare disease
Exploring the practicalities of genomic testing in the NHS, when to consider genomics, and the patient pathway for rare disease.
On Tuesday 28 February the Genomics Education Programme will officially launch its online course Genomics in the NHS: A clinician’s guide to genomic testing for rare disease, which was developed in collaboration with St George’s University of London.
Hosted on the FutureLearn platform, the course provides a practical introduction to genomic testing for rare disease, and supports clinicians with the processes of ordering tests, using the test directory, and feeding back results to patients.
Learners will hear from a wide range of people, from genomics specialists to patients with lived experience of rare disease, to help contextualise the scope and importance of genomic testing for rare disease.
Learning is delivered through a variety of media, including video tutorials, interviews, animations, articles and discussion steps. Interactive elements, including quizzes and discussions, allow learners to test their own knowledge and engage with others.
