Facilitators toolkit

This toolkit has been developed to provide trainers’ and leads’  with downloadable resources to facilitate the dissemination of genomic education and training; to support embedding genomic medicine into healthcare practice. It consists of PDF handbooks and powerpoint slide decks, of which some are available in a narrated version.
