Genomics for GPs
Genomic medicine is a rapidly evolving field with many clinical applications. While individual genetic conditions are often rare, as a collective, genetic conditions are very common with approximately 60% of people being affected with a disorder that has some sort of genetic background. Genomic technologies are being applied to both monogenetic and complex diseases. Additionally, genomics is informing management of both genetic and non-genetic disease.
The Genomics for General Practitioners education program is a collaboration between CheckUP, Queensland Genomics, the Genomic Institute, Queensland University of Technology and the Genomics Primary Care Advisory Group. The initiative was funded by Queensland Genomics.
In 2020, CheckUP in partnership with Dr Michael Gabbett (Chief Investigator, Centre for Genomics and Personalised Health, Course Co-ordinator of Postgraduate Genomics, School of Biomedical Sciences, Queensland University of Technology) delivered three online webinars on the following topics areas:
- Paediatric and Prenatal Genetics.
- Genetic Conditions in Adults and Genetic.
- Cancer Genomics.
Recordings for the webinar series is available below.
CheckUP is pleased to announce that the Genomics for the General Practitioner eLearning resource is now available! The education aims to provide relevant information about genomics medicine to assist General Practitioners in the implementation of genomics into their everyday practice.
