CME and CNE modules on the clinical applications of genetic testing
How can genetics be used in clinic with my patients? Can genetic information really improve outcomes? Genetic testing is constantly changing. How can I keep up?
Precision Medicine for Your Practice is an educational program being developed by Scripps Research Translational Institute (Scripps), the American Medical Association (AMA), and The Jackson Laboratory (JAX) to help clinicians answer these questions. In each module, you will have the opportunity to:
- Practice applying genetic information to realistic cases
- Assess the utility of genetic information
- Learn about benefits and limitations of new genetic tests
This on-demand, interactive program will consist of a series of 12 modules that are 15-30 minutes, case-based and aim to build clinical skills and impact patient care. Topics include prenatal testing, targeted therapy in oncology, genomic sequencing, cardiogenomics, neurogenomics, pharmacogenomics and ethics in precision medicine. Modules will be released individually, and each will be designated for continuing medical education (CME) and continuing nursing education (CE) credit.
