Event Location:Birmingham Conference & Events Centre at the Holiday Inn, Hill Street, Birmingham B5 4EW www.thebcec.co.uk
Genomic medicine is advancing rapidly and is set to accelerate the mainstreaming of genomics into routine clinical care, as well as education and research practice over the coming years.
The NHS England Improving Outcomes through Personalised Medicine strategy states that:
“Britain has the opportunity to be at the forefront of this new era of medicine, delivering 21st century healthcare. As the single biggest integrated healthcare system, combined with our world leading science base and global reputation for innovation, we have the opportunity and capability to transform the way we deliver healthcare to secure benefits for our patients, our society and our economy.”
The Genomics Education Programme recognises our partners will be instrumental in making the significant changes required to embed genomic medicine into healthcare.
To continue to deliver in an informed way we are bringing together key representatives from HEE', Genomic Medicine Centre Leads and representatives from Trusts, Higher Education Institutions and patients to raise awareness and generate new ideas for how we embed genomics into healthcare and discuss what the best educational system would be to deliver our shared objectives.
The aims of this event are to:
raise awareness of the key drivers and strategies in genomics and personalised medicine and how these will impact on patient care
raise the profile of the HEE Genomics Education Programme (GEP) and its work in this critical area of healthcare
bring together, engage and mobilise local HEE teams and key partners to champion the agenda and provide advice and guidance on solutions and any follow-up actions needed including any local investment decisions.
