Genomics in mainstream medicine: an initiative to raise awareness and promote genomics amongst physicians in the UK
Recent developments in genomics (such as the 100,000 genomes project) have underlined the need to ensure that the medical workforce understands the opportunities and possesses the relevant knowledge, skills and competence to deliver care using genomic information. The Genomics in Mainstream Medicine Working Group was established under the auspices of the Joint Committee on Genomics in Medicine and a number of other organisations to raise awareness and to promote the integration of genomics into clinical practice across a wide range of clinical specialties. To facilitate this, ‘clinical champions’ have been recruited via the Royal College of Physicians specialty committees to help develop introductory resources and an action plan for promoting genomics within their own specialties. Work to date has included the development of a document ‘template’ for champions to adapt and use as an introductory resource within their specialty, and the ‘mapping’ of the education landscape for physicians (with the aid of a survey sent out to key stakeholders) to identify genomics education initiatives that are already in place.
