Genomics webinars now available to watch on demand

14 December 2021 (Last updated: 14 Dec 2021 11:29)

A dedicated webinar series developed to support nurses, midwives and health visitors learn about genomics is now available to watch on demand.

Suitable for those with little or no existing knowledge of genomics, each webinar in the three-part series explores a different theme: what genomics is; how it is changing healthcare for the benefit of patients; and how health and social care staff can learn more about it.

Packed with insightful and compelling patient stories, the series features contributions from influential NHS England and NHS Improvement leaders including Chief Nursing Officer, Ruth May; Chief Midwifery Officer, Professor Jacqueline-Dunkley Bent and Chief Scientific Officer and Senior Responsible Officer for Genomics, Professor Dame Sue Hill as well as Health Education England’s Chief Nurse, Professor Mark Radford.

The webinars, which ran in summer 2021, were produced and delivered through a partnership between NHS England and NHS Improvement’s Genomics Unit, Health Education England’s Genomics Education Programme and the RCNi, the events and publishing arm of the Royal College of Nursing. Although aimed at nursing, all webinars are suitable for clinicians working in the field of obstetrics and gynaecology.
