The second in a series, this webinar highlights how genomics is already being used in healthcare to bring benefit to patients, including some real-life examples from nursing and midwifery.

Health Education England’s Genomics Education Programme (HEE GEP), in partnership with NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSE/I) and the RCNi, co-developed a webinar series ‘From Niche to Necessity: Genomics in Routine Care’, which ran in summer 2021.

Developed for nurses, midwives and health visitors with little to no prior knowledge of genomics, the three webinars explored how genomics is changing healthcare and the opportunities it can bring to healthcare professionals and patients.
