Cancer Genomics: The Essentials
Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, in collaboration with Medics.Academy (a medical education company that creates enhanced, online learning solutions for healthcare organisations, professionals and students), have developed ‘Nucleus’, a revolutionary online educational programme to future proof the medical workforce for the genomics generation.
Nucleus provides an interactive, CPD-accredited learning platform for forward-thinking professionals. Its virtual nature means it can rapidly iterate in response to the expanding nature of genomic knowledge, allowing members of the community to tailor their educational needs, learning at their own pace anytime, anywhere.
The Nucleus course packages are focused on evidence-based best practice, and the content has been designed by clinicians from Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust. The first of these course packages is ‘Cancer Genomics: The Essentials’, which teaches the key concepts every health practitioner needs to know about cancer genomics. It consists of four modules that cover the basic principles of cancer genomics, ranging from cancer biology to hereditary cancer risk assessment to the utility of precision oncology in cancer treatment.
Subsequent Cancer Genomics course packages are in development that build on this essential knowledge base, in order to equip healthcare professionals with the skills to successfully utilise cancer genomics in their everyday clinical practice.
If you would like to find out more about how Nucleus could benefit you, your colleagues, your organisation and ultimately the patients you care for, then please do sign up at Nucleus or contact a member of the team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
