Precision Medicine and Genomics: Understanding Implications and Applications
Earn CME credits from the American Medical Association with these modules focusing on techniques and innovations in genetics and personalized medicine and their effects on improving patient care.
IGNITE Genomic Medicine Knowledge Base
Information and tools for clinicians to support the practice of implementing genomics in practice.
Guide to Interpreting Genomic Reports: A Genomics Toolkit
The NHGRI (National Human Genome Research Institute) Clinical Sequencing Exploratory Research (CSER) consortium developed this guide for non-genetics practitioners to explain the different types of data found in genome sequencing test reports. This resource will help the practitioner explain what the different categories in the test report (diagnostic, incidental, carrier) mean and what next steps should be considered.
Information about the role of healthcare providers in the All of Us research program
Providers will be better able to engage in discussions with patients about the program, address questions about enrollment and its operation, and become familiar with the role of the healthcare provider.
Precision Medicine for Your Practice
Precision Medicine for Your Practice is an educational program being developed by Scripps Research Translational Institute (Scripps), the American Medical Association (AMA), and The Jackson Laboratory (JAX) to help clinicians answer these questions. In each module, you will have the opportunity to: practice applying genetic information to realistic cases, assess the utility of genetic information, and learn about benefits and limitations of new genetic tests.
