IDF Evening Webinar - Clinical Genetics: Back to the Future - what you really need to know now

Event Details

We are delighted to invite you to our Evening Webinar with Dr Ian Ellis who will be presenting on Clinical Genetics: Back to the Future - what you really need to know now.

This talk would be intended to be a back to the beginning look at where clinical genetics has come from and where next generation genetic testing has taken us.  To shine a light towards more informed medicine of the near future.  Minimising theory and focusing on a need to know basis for all doctors in practice

Learning objectives:

  •          How to take a basic family history and what this can tell you
  •          Genes and the environment - how important is nature and nurture
  •          Could this be genetic? and what should I do if I have identified a possible family predisposition
  •          Arranging genetic testing - a non-scary guide
  •          Consent, cost and caution to genomic testing
  •          What is chromosome microarray (CMA) testing?
  •          Can I ask for a genetic panel and what does this tell us?
  •          What does whole genome sequencing (WGS) give me, and what are the drawbacks?
