GeNotes featured in The Times

Our upcoming ‘just-in-time’ educational resource hits the news on Rare Disease Day

A new genomics education tool – GeNotes (genomic notes for clinicians) – was featured in an article in The Times this week, in a piece to mark the launch of the Rare Disease Action Plan for England.

Developed by Health Education England’s Genomics Education Programme (GEP), GeNotes is a ‘just-in-time’ educational resource designed to help clinicians know when and how to access genomic testing in clinical practice, underpinned by opportunities for further learning.

GeNotes is currently in the development phase and due to launch as a public beta for Oncology later this month, following successful private beta testing.

Test-drive GeNotes Paediatrics

Paediatrics has now been added to the beta testing platform and the GEP is inviting consultants and doctors-in-training in Paediatrics to test-drive GeNotes and provide feedback via a short online survey.

The survey takes 10 minutes to complete and will be available until Sunday 20th March, so please be sure to submit your feedback by then.

GeNotes in your specialty

The GEP is working with subject matter experts across the NHS to develop GeNotes content for a range of specialties. Following the public beta launch of GeNotes Oncology, we will be launching Paediatrics, Primary Care, and many others.
