Webinar: 2020 Update on Precision Diagnostics for AML in the UK

November 2 @ 6:30 pm - 8:15 pm

 

Professor Anna Schuh, Dr Richard Dillon and Dr Angela Hamblin will discuss the importance of the cytogenetic, molecular and genomic testing that guide AML directed treatment. They will also provide an update of diagnostic developments that will influence clinical practice in the future.

 

The webinar is intended for healthcare professionals and healthcare laboratory scientists and CPD accreditation has been granted, in principle.

 

There will be an opportunity to ask the panelists questions on cytogenetic, molecular and genomic testing and their relevance in AML treatment during Q&A sessions at the end of each presentation, as well as at the panel discussion at the end of the webinar.

With any Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) test ordered, a Record of Discussion (RoD) form will also need to be submitted. This document is to record the patient’s consent for genomic testing and their choice on taking part in research. Guidance on the patient choice conversation can be found here
 
This RoD form will be available for clinicians to download from this webpage. Once completed with the patient, it can be send to the lab with the corresponding test order form and sample.
Tests available to order will be listed in the National Genomic Test Directory. A test order form will soon be made available for clinicians on this webpage to download and complete. This form will include the address of the laboratory that the appropriate sample and completed form needs to be sent to.
 
Until the new Genomic Laboratory Service goes live, please continue to follow existing test order processes.
 
Later this year, the online test ordering tool for Whole Genome Sequencing will be integrated into the National Genomics Informatics System (NGIS) and clinicians will be able to search or filter to find a clinical indication, confirm eligibility criteria and start the test request process for their patient.
