Genomic Testing for the Healthy Individual
Is genomic testing right for your patient? Learn how healthy individuals can use genomic testing to make medical and lifestyle decisions
Are your patients bringing in DTC test results and asking for management recommendations?
Learn about this technology using the five parts of this module: overview information via an animated video; practice cases to facilitate learning-by-doing; "dig deeper" for more in-depth topics; and logistics and additional resources for more detail.
CME and CNE modules on the clinical applications of genetic testing
How can genetics be used in clinic with my patients? Can genetic information really improve outcomes? Genetic testing is constantly changing. How can I keep up?
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
- Learn about benefits and limitations of new genetic tests
This on-demand, interactive program will consist of a series of 12 modules that are 15-30 minutes, case-based and aim to build clinical skills and impact patient care. Topics include prenatal testing, targeted therapy in oncology, genomic sequencing, cardiogenomics, neurogenomics, pharmacogenomics and ethics in precision medicine. Modules will be released individually, and each will be designated for continuing medical education (CME) and continuing nursing education (CE) credit.
