On Monday 22 January, the National Genomics Education programme will launch an exciting new online course: ‘Genomics in the NHS: A clinician’s guide to genomic testing for cancer’. Hosted on the FutureLearn platform and set over two weeks, the course provides a comprehensive overview of genomic testing in cancer and aims to support clinicians in navigating the testing pathway, including how to use the National Genomic Test Directory, reading genomic reports and feeding back results to patients. Learners will hear from genomics specialists and patients with lived experience of cancer, to help contextualise the scope and importance of genomic testing. Expert mentors will be on hand to provide support and answer questions. Learning is delivered through a variety of media, including video tutorials, interviews, animations and articles.
