The genetics of primary care
July 26 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
The eleventh webinar in The genetics of… series from the Royal Society of Medicine. This webinar will equip attendees with the clinical skills required to help patients presenting with common genetic situations.
Frequent challenges for primary care workers include identifying higher cancer risks in patients, spotting a child with a rare disease and understanding consumer genetic test reports. This hour-long webinar will provide you with the clinical know-how you need to tackle these frequent scenarios, with the opportunity to ask questions of the panel.
During this webinar you will:
- Provide delegates with clinical and digital tools needed to assess a patients risk of developing certain cancers based on their family history
- Recognise the pattern of presentation to primary care that could indicate a patient has a rare disease
- Equip attendees with the steps to follow when presented with results of patient-organised DNA genetic tests
The genetics of… series has been developed following feedback from delegates. Presented by the Medical Genetics section of the Royal Society of Medicine, this series of talks will focus on the role of genetics in different areas of health and well-being.
