About the course

Genomics offers better diagnoses for patients, improved and safer treatments, opportunities for screening, and possibilities for disease prevention and health promotion across populations. Integrating genomic testing into health services is a challenge that many countries and organisations are currently tackling. Some countries are doing this at pace and the UK is one that is helping to lead the way.

Currently, little is known about the organisational factors that could block or accelerate genomics integration.
