About this event

Genomics is going to be fundamental to the future of healthcare, transforming outcomes for patients and families. These new technologies are already entering mainstream healthcare and to help prepare you for this exciting future you will need some understanding of what it means for you, your clinical practice and the people in your care.

NHS England and NHS Improvement and Health Education England’s Genomics Education Programme have partnered with the RCNi and extend a warm invitation to you to join us at an introductory series of three webinars exploring genomics, its use in healthcare and the opportunities it brings for nurses, midwives and health visitors. With no prior knowledge of genomics required, each webinar will highlight different topics and feature contributions from a wide variety of professionals in practice, suitable for all from novice to expert.

Each webinar is CPD-certified and will allow you to gain two hours of participatory CPD towards your revalidation.
