Free online courses in genetics produced by health professionals in Europe for health professionals in Europe.
As part of the Gen-Equip project, we have produced a series of online courses based on patient cases.
They are suitable for medical doctors, nurses and midwives:
- Working in Primary Care (general or family practice)
- Working Secondary care (e.g. oncology, cardiac care, obstetrics, pardiatrics)
- Who have begun training in genetics (genetic counsellors, genetic nurses, trainee geneticists)
- As additional course material for undergraduate or postgraduate students in the health professions.
There are cases to cover:
- Familial cancers
- Genetic issues arising during or before pregnancy
- The child with a genetic condition
- Inherited cardiac conditions.
In addition, there is a series of short webinars on key topics such as
- Taking and recording a family history,
- Testing during pregnancy,
- Understanding genetic test results
- Referring to the genetics service.
Please go to www.primarycaregenetics.org to access all the educational materials.
This project has been co-funded by the European Union under the Erasmus+ programme.
