When Genomics Unexpectedly Turned Up To Work: Reflections from across the NHS

Available for South Tees staff only

Event details

Booking is closed for this event


Following a successful pilot with a handful of trusts during the summer, North East & Yorkshire Genomic Medicine Service (NEY GMS) are visiting hospitals across the region with their ‘genomic roadshow’, running information stalls and a seminar, designed for those who might know a little bit (or nothing at all!) about genomics but are wondering how it connects to their actual practice.

The seminar is called ‘When Genomics Unexpectedly Turned Up To Work: Reflections From Across The NHS’ and provides a whistle-stop tour through the ways in which genomics is becoming part of our everyday working life, featuring reflections from different NHS professionals and patients on their experiences with genomics and how it has changed practice and care for patients. What is it actually like when someone mentions genomics for the first time at work? And what about when you’re expected to start understanding and using it as part of mainstream care?

NEY GMS will also be running an information stall on Thursday 26th in the Atrium at James Cook from 9.30am – 3.30pm, talking to people about their work, sharing upcoming training opportunities, and starting conversations about genomics. Drop by, say hello and chat to one of their team about the work being done in genomic medicine across the region and how you can access education and training opportunities.
