GENETICS IN YOUR CLINIC: WHAT YOU CAN AND SHOULD DO NOW

Applying the Latest Genetics Findings to Your Practice
An ASHG Global Virtual Meeting, March 22, 2016
 
5am Pacific, 8am Eastern, 1pm GMT

Primary audience: Primary care clinicians

Other audiences: All health care professionals, including genetic counselors, PAs, LPNs, NPs, RNs, clinical geneticists, physicians in practice, genetics researchers, and others

As we learn more about the contribution of genetic and genomic factors to the origin, natural history, and treatment of human disease, clinicians are assuming more responsibility for ordering genetic tests for their patients. This, plus the emergence of Precision Medicine and the growing availability of direct-to-consumer genetic tests, adds to the need for clinicians to understand available tests and how to use them. Increasingly often, health care professionals are expected to:

  • Understand the utility and significance of these tests
  • Provide appropriate pre-test education and counseling
  • Convey test results in an informative and compassionate way
  • Use the results in patient management

In this free virtual meeting organized by the American Society of Human Genetics, physicians and other health care professionals will learn from human genetics experts about:

  • Genetic technologies currently available for use in the clinic
  • The limitations of these technologies
  • Information in personal and family histories that indicate a need for genetic testing
  • How to interpret results in ways most useful to the patient
  • When to refer to specialized genetic services

Participants will also receive a Genetics Tool Kit, which will include all meeting slide sets, links to relevant information from professional societies, directories of genetic testing providers and medical genetics specialists, and resources for physicians and patients. One 45-minute session will provide identical content in English and Spanish, and resources in both languages will be available in the Tool Kit. 

This meeting will be free of charge to participants. Continuing education credits, including free CME credits, will be offered.  Please Click here for more information on how to obtain your credits.
