In collaboration with healthcare professionals from across the health service, the Genomics Education Programme has developed a competency framework for healthcare professionals who are communicating the results of a genomic test to a patient and/or their family.

This document lists the six core competencies in a handy two-sided sheet, which can be downloaded and printed as a useful reference for both learners and educators.

You can view the framework in full, along with links to supporting evidence-based educational resources, on our competency framework page.
