Join us in September to learn the skills and knowledge required to recruit and consent patients to the 100,000 Genomes Project
HEE’s Genomics Education Programme in conjunction with the Birmingham Women’s Hospital Clinical Genetics unit and the West Midlands Genomic Medicine Centre (GMC) education team will be hosting a National Consent Training Day on Tuesday 20th September in central Birmingham.
The aim of the day is to introduce and demonstrate the use of a blended learning package that is designed to equip health professionals with the skills and knowledge required to recruit and consent patients to the 100,000 Genomes Project.
The package incorporates the Genomics Education Programme’s ‘Preparing for the consent conversation’ online training course and training materials that can be used in face-to-face sessions.
We would like to invite individuals from each Genomic Medicine Centre (approximately 3 from each centre) to attend this event. Ideally these representatives will be the individuals who will provide consent training within their GMC. Please email Charlotte Szczepanik: Charlotte.Szczepanik@wm.hee.nhs.uk with the details of who will be attending or if you would like more information. The location of the meeting will be confirmed in the coming weeks.
