Welcome to week 1

Three GPs, Drs Millington-Sanders, Rafi and Hayward welcome learners to the course and discuss two common primary care scenarios involving genomics.

GP Dr Catherine Millington-Sanders asked her colleagues for examples of situations where genomics might be relevant to Primary Care. Dr Jude Hayward and Dr Imran Rafi suggest two common scenarios: a family with a history of breast cancer, and the common genetic condition Familial Hypercholesterolaemia.

During the first week of the course we will explore two cases and how they might develop. You will learn about how patients with conditions like these could be managed in Primary Care and when referral to specialist services would be needed.

We look forward to hearing your thoughts about these cases and related experiences from your practice.
