Virtual Cancer Genetics Course 20/21
Dates: 2 November 2020 – 2 February 2021
The course will take place on eight half day sessions between 2 November 2020 and 2 February 2021
The field of cancer genomics and recent technological advances are shaping how we diagnose and treat cancer. This virtual course will teach the core concepts of risk stratification using family history as a tool to enable patients to access appropriate management strategies. The course is designed for all healthcare professionals working in primary care and specialist settings including oncology, breast care, gynae-oncology, gastroenterology and screening services. Participants will be equipped with the basics of cancer genetic counselling and sessions will include approaches to genetic testing, management of hereditary cancers and consent taking.
The option of undertaking a work based learning module through KCL will also be discussed with delegates. This is entirely optional and the fee for this separate to that of the course.
