The genomic revolution: A practical guide to what you can’t afford not to know Part 1

December 3 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

 

This exciting 3-part webinar series sees representatives from NHS England give an up-to-date outline of the changes in genomic infrastructure which will transform the provision of genomic testing in the NHS.

In this first webinar, top speakers will help clinicians understand how the increasing availability of state of the art genomic testing in the NHS will impact their day to day clinical practice.

Webinar topics include:

  • Discuss recent advances in genomic testing and how they have been integrated into clinical testing pathways within the NHS
  • Understand how genomic tests are generated
  • Familiarise yourself with the process of the clinical interpretation of genomic results

 

A CPD certificate with 1 CPD credit will be issued to those joining the webinar live as well as those who watch the recording afterwards. Please visit the Royal Society of Medicine website for more information and to purchase a ticket.

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.
