Resources for clinical educators teaching genetics
Educators who want to incorporate genetics and genomics into trainee curricula, lectures, or talks to colleagues may find the resources below helpful. Core competencies in genetics can help to prioritize topic areas and the other resources can be used to augment learning.
All core competencies and principles were developed by multidisciplinary working groups coordinated by the National Coalition for Health Professional Education in Genetics (NCHPEG).
Core Competencies for Healthcare Providers. Identifies competencies in genetics for all healthcare providers.
Core Principles in Family History. Identifies core principles in the collection and interpretation of a medical family history for all healthcare providers.
Core Principles in Genetics. Identifies core principles that should constitute basic instruction in genetics for those in healthcare.
Principles of Genetics in the Context of Common Disease. Summarizes principles intended to guide educational efforts that address the expansion of genetics into the realm of common complex diseases.
The Value of Family History in Prenatal Care Practice Slide Set. Teaches about the value of family history in general prenatal care with case studies about family history collection and interpretation.
Family History Core Principles Slide Set. Teaches about inheritance patterns, genetic red flags, and risk assessment using didactic presentation and case studies to demonstrate concepts.
Genetic Testing Methods eBook. Provides information about different genetic testing methods currently used in testing for hereditary cancer syndromes (enhanced e-book available for download).
GINA Discussion Guide. Provides talking points and key information about genetic discrimination and the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA), which protects individuals from the misuse of genetic information in health insurance and employment.
Free, self-directed programs for continuing education credit. Courses can be and have been used in curricula for clinical trainees.
