Genomics and Genetics – Counselling Skills

March 17 2020 @ 9:00 AM - March 20 2020 @ 5:00 PM

Cardiff University will be running a 4 day face-to-face course in Counselling Skills for Genetic Healthcare to which any genetic counselors and other healthcare professionals in our region have been invited. 

The course will help applicants develop their counselling skills for supporting patients and their families in their clinical practice, who may be coping with loss, adjusting to their genetic status and/or making decisions related to a genetic condition.

The course partially meets the GCRB Set B criteria for an assessed counselling course.

Find more information about this course and other Cardiff University CPD modules on their 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.
