Genomics & Sudden Cardiac Death

July 4 2023 @ 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Learning event about Genomics & Sudden Cardiac Arrest

Learn how genomics can save lives in your intensive care unit.

Join us for a morning of learning and sharing about how to reduce the number of deaths from cardiac arrest.

This is a face to face study day at Guys Hospital, where we will share everything we have learnt about how genomics can be instrumental in reducing the number of deaths from inherited cardiac conditions.

We’ve established a new pathway which empowers nurses to identify patients who may have inherited cardiac conditions, and help facilitate genetic testing by storing DNA samples. This can then lead to diagnosis and identification of family members who may be at risk.

This session is open to everyone who works with cardiac patients in intensive care regardless of your knowledge.

To book your place, please register via Eventbrite here

If you need more information, please get in touch with our Inherited Cardiac Conditions Nurse, Katie Frampton on Katie.Frampton@stgeorges.nhs.uk

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.
