New reference guides available to help identify participants for the 100,000 Genomes Project

Posted on 9 December 2016 (Permalink)

The Health Education England’s Genomics Education Programme (GEP), in collaboration with University Hospitals Leicester, has developed a series of easy reference tools to identify patients and participants eligible to take part in the 100,000 Genomes Project. Aimed at any staff recruiting patients within Genomics Medicine Centres or local delivery partners, the wheels have been developed in line with the most recent changes to the project’s eligibility criteria (July 2016).

The eligibility wheels have brought together conditions that would be seen by specific physicians in a clinical setting. The first series of wheels to be delivered feature:

  • Cardiovascular disorders
  • Ciliopathies
  • Rheumatological disorders
  • Skeletal disorders.

Additional sets of wheels, covering a variety of conditions, will be delivered monthly until March 2017. You can view the first ten wheels on the GEP website.
