Primary and Secondary Genomic Sequence Findings Applied to Patient Diagnosis and Care
During The ACMG Genomics Case Conferences, a team from select institutions will present and lead discussions on an intriguing, complex and/or difficult patient case in the area of genomics. The primary focus of these case conferences will be on the adaptation of exome or genome sequencing technology in clinical care. There are four overall learning objectives that will be covered in each session. As well there are specific learning objectives pertinent to the cases presented. At the conclusion of the session the learners will rate the session and whether each learning objective has been met.
1. Clinical geneticists; genetic counselors; pediatric, obstetric, and maternal-fetal specialists; and all medical practitioners who are providing comprehensive diagnostic, management, and counseling services for patients with, or at risk for, genetically influenced health problems.
2. Laboratory directors and technicians who conduct genetic testing, researchers involved in the discovery of genetic disorders and treatments and any healthcare and public health professionals who have an in interest medical and clinical genetics and genomics.
This activity is supported by an unrestricted educational grant from QIAGEN Bioinformatics and the Ingenuity Clinical Decision Support Platform.
