MODY Lunch & Learn

April 23 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Information about our online learning session about Monogenic Diabetes

Join us to learn more about monogenic diabetes in pregnancy.

Did you know that 80% of people with monogenic diabetes are currently misdiagnosed?!

Here in the South East we have been leading a new project to improve genetic testing for monogenic diabetes.

We’ve recently hosted a national study day with midwives and nurses from all over England joining us to learn more. However many of you couldn’t join us, so we are organising an online learning session where we’ll share our knowledge and answer your questions.

Our specialist MODY midwives, Beth & Nicola will be leading this session with talks from other experts including Endocrinologists ​and how to care for women with MODY during their pregnancy.

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.
