We acknowledge there are a wealth of resources/material available, however, we have received feedback that it is often challenging to navigate for busy healthcare professionals who are seeking easy access to appropriate information and learning.
With this in mind we are developing an Electronic Resource Catalogue which will aim to provide a central point of reference signposting users’. Subject matter experts will review resources/materials prior to publication and provide a precise of each resource/course in line with the proposed Modular Approach.
· Advanced – the genomics team and staff directly involved in 100,000 (including Genetic Scientists and Genetic Counsellors).
· Intermediate – staff involved in care pathways that may result in ordering genomic tests, including WGS: Nurses, Midwives, Allied Healthcare Professionals, Trainees, Training Programme Directors and Specialised Clinical Teams. Increasingly specialist teams such as cardiology, neurology, developmental paediatrics etc will be working with genetics teams to order these tests. They will need to know when and how to request them, and how to interpret results for patients.
· Foundation – the wider NHS workforce, including foundation and core trainees and staff working within associated organisations.
HEE GEP has been established a wide range of resources to support healthcare staff to keep up with and stay ahead of developments in genomic medicine – https://www.genomicseducation.hee.nhs.uk/education/
