New GeNotes specialty: Paediatrics is now live!

The flagship GeNotes resource continues to grow at pace with the addition of more than 100 new resources for paediatrics

The National Genomics Education programme’s flagship resource GeNotes, has welcomed another new specialty to its growing collection. The collection has been developed in collaboration with clinical experts working across the NHS and covers when, why and how to request genomic testing, as well as information to support feeding back results to patients.

GeNotes is aligned to – and designed to support – the latest NHS National Genomic Test Directory. It is the first resource of its kind to offer both practical and educational information on genomic testing to NHS professionals, reinforced with supporting education for those keen to extend their knowledge.

Clinical scenarios and supporting resources

Paediatricians can access GeNotes across two tiers. The first tier is In the Clinic, where each resource is centred around short clinical scenarios designed to give the clinician a quick and efficient knowledge boost before or during a patient appointment.

A unique feature of GeNotes is the second tier, Knowledge Hub, which acts as an encyclopaedia of further learning resources designed to help clinicians develop their understanding of genomics in healthcare. For independent learners, the Knowledge Hub can be used to chart their own bespoke learning journey through the use of text, diagrams, infographics, animations and films.

GeNotes coming to your specialty

GeNotes continues to grow in popularity and there are more specialty working groups developing content for the next phases, including Cardiology, Endocrinology, Pharmacogenomics and Primary Care, with further groups recently established, including Neurology and Renal.

If you would like to contribute to a working group, or would be interested in initiating a working group in another area of practice, visit the National Genomics Education programme website for further information.
