New in GeNotes: Neurology launches today!

The National Genomics Education programme has once again expanded its flagship resource with the launch of a brand-new neurology collection

GeNotes is a free educational resource developed by the National Genomics Education programme in partnership with expert clinicians across the NHS. Today sees the launch of its latest collection: a wealth of just-in-time articles and further learning resources written by neurologists for neurologists.

Understanding the control of gene expression in the brain is central to understanding normal brain function and, increasingly, neurological disease. The introduction of the NHS Genomic Medicine Service in England means that all neurologists will have access to genomic testing where they may not have previously, and developing an understanding of when and how this will benefit patients has never been more important.

Concise summaries and in-depth learning

Split across two tiers, GeNotes is there to support the busy neurologist before, during and after patient appointments. The first tier, In the Clinic, contains just-in-time resources centred around short clinical scenarios, which are designed to provide clinicians with the genomic testing information they need quickly before or during a patient appointment. The second tier, Knowledge Hub, acts as an encyclopaedia of further learning and is designed to develop users’ understanding of a wide range of topics – from genomic technologies and therapies to specific genetic conditions.

GeNotes in your specialty

With the number of GeNotes users growing fast, working groups are busy developing content for a range of new specialties – including cardiology, dermatology and mental health.
