Returning this June, the GEP’s annual awareness week will focus on helping healthcare professionals to feel confident when talking about genomics
The fifth annual #GenomicsConversation campaign is taking place this June and we would like to invite all healthcare professionals to join us and get prepared to talk about genomics with both patients and colleagues.
We understand that everyone is busy so to maximise learning time, each day of the week has been dedicated to a theme covering a different area of genomics communication:
Day 1: What is genomics? Why do I need to talk about it?
Day 2: Common questions you might encounter.
Day 3: Recognising when genomics is relevant.
Day 4: Getting equipped to talk about genomics.
Day 5: In summary: key tips and takeaways.
A tailored calendar of activities will also be available, including an assortment of free online activities, from blogs to videos, as well as links to relevant GEP courses and resources. Further details will be published on our website in the weeks leading up to the event.
Be part of the week
The #GenomicsConversation 2022 is aimed at all healthcare professionals, and we would like to encourage everyone to get involved this year. We have created a supporting webpage which contains lots of example activities and suggested social media posts to help support the week. On this page, you can also find our FAQs to answer any queries you may have about the week.
If you have any ideas for activities in your workplace or region, or would like to get involved in this campaign, please get in touch with the GEP team.
