Genomics Webinar 2 – What does genomics mean for families?

The iHV has teamed up with Genomics Education Programme (GEP) to run 3 webinars on genomics.  We ran the first webinar in December 2021 when we considered “What does genomics mean for health visitors?” (see link below to access the webinar recording).

Our second webinar “What does genomics mean for families?” is on 27/01/2022 14:00-15:30

Highlights include.

  • The importance of family history with practical tips and tools for asking about and recording family history including consideration of family dynamics, paternity, consanguinity, ethnicity, IVF, and reproductive technologies.
  • Consideration of the implications for the wider family when a genomic diagnosis is made, including what this means for future pregnancies.
  • Exploration of how health visitors can support families after they have received a genomic diagnosis.

Genomics Webinar 1

The iHV has teamed up with Genomics Education Programme (GEP) to run 3 webinars on genomics.  We ran the first webinar in December 2021 when we considered “What does genomics mean for health visitors?”.

Dr Michelle Bishop from GEP helped us to look at what genomics is, and we went behind the scenes to understand what happens when a child undergoes genomic testing.  We also considered how we might come across it in practice and what to do when that happens with some principles for health visiting practice.
