Genomic Counselling for Genetic Counsellors 2015 Workshop

Posted on May 24, 2015 7:58:00 AM

Workshop - Cambridge, United Kingdom
The Wellcome Trust in association with Health Education England are pleased to announce this new workshop. This course aims to meet the training needs of genetic counsellors as they upskill in response to the introduction of genomic sequencing in the clinic. The programme will address the fundamental aspects of genomics and bioinformatics that underpin clinical practice, focusing on communication issues relevant to all practising genetic counsellors. Attendees will have the opportunity to work with sequence data and explore how it is created, analysed and delivered.
The workshop is suitable for practising genetic counsellors and genetic nurses.
Topics will include:
Genetic to genomic counselling – challenges and opportunities
Sequencing and bioinformatics – what does the genetic counsellor need to know?
Choosing what to test for and taking consent
Sequencing analysis and interpretation
Visualising and reporting genomic data – background for the genetic counsellor
