WeNurses genomic webchat: get ready for personalised medicine

10 November 2016 Webchat at the @WeNurses platform

The patient journey is set to be revolutionised through advances in our ability to analyse and understand a person’s DNA (their genome), and how it can affect their health. This will change how a patient is diagnosed, and how we manage and treat disease, bringing personalised medicine to the forefront of healthcare.

Nurses play a key part throughout the patient journey, and need to be ready with the knowledge and skills required to communicate genomic information, understand the implications of results, and provide appropriate support.

Using the @WeNurses platform, Health Education England's Genomics Education Programme would like to engage with the nursing community through a webchat on 10 November at 8pm to learn more about genomics in nursing practice.
