What To Know About Healthcare Professionals' Genomics Education Week

We all understand the importance of implementing genomics and patient care, but healthcare providers may not be aware of the genomics education resources available. Our partners at the National Human Genome Research Institute, along with several of our colleagues, are organizing a social media campaign from June 6-10 that focuses on healthcare provider genomics education. This initiative will include panel discussions, webinars, Twitter chats and Q&As.

The full schedule, with links:

June 6: Direct-to-Consumer Genetic Testing

Direct-to-Consumer Genetic Testing: Case Studies

11:00 a.m. ET

ISCC-PEG Direct-to-Consumer Genetic Testing (DTC-GT) project group will host a panel of genetics professionals to discuss clinical vignettes related to DTC-GT.

For a refresher about DTC-GT, participants are encouraged to view the 2021 Healthcare Provider Education Week webinar: DTC-GT for Healthcare Professionals.

June 8: Inclusive Genetics

TBD

Check back later for event information.

 

June 9: Cancer Genomics/OB-GYN

Navigating Germline vs. Somatic Testing in Cancer Care: A Multi-disciplinary Panel Discussion

12:00 p.m. ET

Genomic tumor testing performed for treatment decision-making may also identify variants associated with hereditary cancer risk. However, interpreting possible hereditary or germline risks based on genomic tumor testing can be challenging.

Join The Jackson Laboratory for an educational webinar in which a multidisciplinary panel of clinical and laboratory experts will discuss cases that demonstrate the ability and limitations of tumor testing to identify hereditary cancer risks.

Panelists:

  • Kate Reed, M.P.H., Sc.M., CGC, Director, Precision Oncology Education, The Jackson Laboratory
  • Nick Renzette, Ph.D., Supervisor, Clinical Data Analysis & Reporting, The Jackson Laboratory
  • Stephanie Sharp, M.S., CGC, Genetic Counselor, Cancer Risk and Prevention Clinic, Maine Medical Center
  • Christine Walko, Pharm.D., BCOP, FCCP, Associate Member, Individualized Cancer Management, Moffitt Cancer Center

Cancer Genomics: How to Talk the Talk and Walk the Walk as Oncology Nurses

1:00 p.m. ET

Oncology nurses play an essential role in supporting people with cancer when they receive complex genomic information that is used to inform their treatment plan. The Oncology Nursing Society (ONS) wants to assure that the current and next generation of oncology nurses know the science, can apply the latest evidence in practice, and translate genomics information to patients and families. ONS offers a genomics taxonomy, a multitude of educational offerings, and point-of-care tools to support oncology nursing practice. Learn about these resources and how to integrate them into your practice by attending this learning activity.

Zoom Meeting

Genomic Medicine and the Primary Care Physician: The role of the Molecular Diagnostics Community in Resident and Physician Training

1:00 p.m. ET

Developments in genomics are profoundly influencing every aspect of medical practice. With the increasing use of genetic and genomic testing, patients and their families are often turning to primary care physicians (PCPs) for discussion and advice regarding tests, implications, and results. Yet, navigating this ever-growing and complex field can be challenging without a working knowledge of the basics and the resources. A critical component in expanding PCP genomic literacy lies in the education of physicians in training and in practice. This presentation focuses on the recently published report of the Association for Molecular Pathology Training and Education Committee on a Suggested Framework for Primary Care Resident Training in Genomic Medicine. It will outline the key role of the molecular professionals to facilitate the education of residents in accordance with curriculum guidelines and requirements for the residency as part of a multidisciplinary approach, coordinated by the primary care program.

June 10: Rare Diseases

Rare Diseases Genomics Trivia

9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. ET

The Division of Rare Diseases Research Innovation (DRDRI) will post 10 trivia questions at 9:00 a.m. and participants will have until 2:00 p.m. to answer the poll questions and after 2 pm the correct answers will be provided. Participants will be encouraged to share their scores and questions will be focused on rare diseases genomics. #RareDiseases
