MISSION

The Policy Working Group seeks to analyze policy issues in the implementation of genomic tools and knowledge into health care delivery.

GOALS

  • Implement policies for new and existing genomic technologies into clinal care.
  • Develop an asset map for policies that exist or that are needed for genomic medicine implementation associated with the patient care pathway.
  • Maintain a catalog of genomic medicine policies around the world.
  • Analyze and develop the policy agenda to support G2MC Flagship Projects.

ACTIVITIES

The Policy Working Group has a program of activities that currently incorporates the development of:

  • A web-based resource that provides information on genomic medicine implementation initiatives and related policy issues as well as links to relevant resources and organizations.
  • A roadmap for implementation of genomic medicine – outlining policy issues for consideration.

Genomics Policy Website

The Genomics Policy Website provides information on policy approaches to facilitate the integration of genomics into healthcare. It includes a catalog of global genomic medicine implementation initiatives as well as links to relevant organizations, events, and media.
