Clinical update in genetics and endocrinology – Part 2

May 5 2021 @ 4:35 PM - 6:10 PM

This three-part webinar from the RSM will provide an overview of genetics and endocrinology and feature experts across both of these fields.

In this second webinar, expert speakers in the field of genetics and endocrinology include Nadia Schumachers, Dr Sasha Howard and Professor Mehul Dattani.


Topics covered:

  • Learn the clinical approach to the genetics of pituitary tumours
  • Understand the genetics of phaeochromocytomas and paragangliomas
  • Learn the appropriate approach for patients with Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia syndromes

View the full programme and secure your ticket via the RSM event webpage.

With any Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS) test ordered, a Record of Discussion (RoD) form will also need to be submitted. This document is to record the patient’s consent for genomic testing and their choice on taking part in research. Guidance on the patient choice conversation can be found here
This RoD form will be available for clinicians to download from this webpage. Once completed with the patient, it can be send to the lab with the corresponding test order form and sample.
Tests available to order will be listed in the National Genomic Test Directory. A test order form will soon be made available for clinicians on this webpage to download and complete. This form will include the address of the laboratory that the appropriate sample and completed form needs to be sent to.
Until the new Genomic Laboratory Service goes live, please continue to follow existing test order processes.
Later this year, the online test ordering tool for Whole Genome Sequencing will be integrated into the National Genomics Informatics System (NGIS) and clinicians will be able to search or filter to find a clinical indication, confirm eligibility criteria and start the test request process for their patient.
