Get involved in the Genomics Conversation 2022

9th June 2022

The fifth annual #GenomicsConversation campaign is taking place from 20-24 June 2022 and will focus on helping healthcare professionals to feel confident when talking about genomics.

The goal for the week is to spark a conversation about genomics and increase healthcare professionals’ familiarity with the topic.

Genomics is increasingly relevant to health visitors, but in what ways? What are the common questions you might encounter? Find out why genomics conversations are relevant in your practice and what you need to know by joining the #GenomicsConversation. Plus keep an eye out for  Genomics Education Programme’s new “Genomics in Health Visiting” resource being launched that week.

Genomics Conversation

 

The Genomics Education Programme (GEP) invites all healthcare professionals to join them and get prepared to talk about genomics with both patients and colleagues.

To maximise learning time, each day of the week has a dedicated theme covering a different area of genomics communication:

  • Day 1: What is genomics? Why do I need to talk about it?
  • Day 2: Common questions you might encounter.
  • Day 3: Recognising when genomics is relevant.
  • Day 4: Getting equipped to talk about genomics.
  • Day 5: In summary: key tips and takeaways.

In addition to the theme days, the GEP has also launched a supporting webpage containing example activities, suggested social media posts and FAQs to answer any questions you may have about the week. If you would like to get involved, please email the GEP team.
