Course - Bertinoro, Italy
The course has been divided in two parts. The first part includes basic scientific information and clinical skills needed for genetic healthcare practice, including prenatal, cancer genetics, ethics and laboratory testing. The second part will focus on the counselling and communication skills required by those working with patients and their families. All students will be encouraged to practice their counselling skills in a supportive environment and to give and receive feedback. The course will include some exercises and discussion sessions aimed at facilitating professional and personal self-awareness of students, in order to enhance their genetic counselling practice. The course will include sessions on supporting patients through decision-making, prenatal and presymptomatic testing.
Clinical geneticists, genetic counsellors, genetic nurses and trainees in those professions. Students who are new to genetic healthcare should not attempt Part 2 without first completing part 1. Very experienced genetics practitioners may wish to do Part 2 only.
