GeNotes: Primary Care is now live!

The National Genomics Education programme continues to expand its flagship resource, GeNotes, with the launch of a brand-new primary care collection

Expanding genomics knowledge across its workforce is a key part of the NHS Long Term Plan – meaning that it’s now more important than ever for health professionals to have an understanding of the role genomics plays in their practice.

To help the NHS achieve its aims, the National Genomics Education programme has added another speciality to its free educational resource, GeNotes. This month, a new primary care collection joined existing specialties paediatrics, oncology and fetal and women’s health, all developed in collaboration with clinical experts working across the NHS.

Just-in-time resources

Primary care professionals can access GeNotes across two tiers. The first tier, In the Clinic, contains concise articles centred around short clinical scenarios, which are designed to provide the time-poor clinician with a quick, efficient knowledge boost before or during a patient appointment. The second tier, Knowledge Hub, acts as an encyclopaedia of further learning resources, designed to develop users’ understanding of a wide range of topics: from specific genetic conditions to genomic testing technologies and core genomics concepts.

GeNotes in your specialty

With the GeNotes usership growing fast, working groups are busy developing content for a range of other specialties – from endocrinology and cardiology to pharmacogenomics and mental health.
