Genomics in general practice
Last revised: 30 Nov 2018
In 2015, The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) took ownership of Genetics in family medicine: The Australian handbook for general practitioners, a 2007 resource produced by the now defunct Biotechnology Australia, with support from the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC). Developed in collaboration with a broad range of national stakeholders, Genetics in family medicine: The Australian handbook for general practitioners provided comprehensive and authoritative advice on a range of issues in genetic medicine for general practitioners (GPs) at a time of burgeoning interest in this field.
In the 10 years since it was published, the field of genetics and genomics has developed rapidly. Advances in genetics and genomics offer great potential for identifying patients at risk of disease and targeting treatment. GPs need up-to-date knowledge and skills in this domain.
To determine how best to update the 2007 resource, ensuring the material remains relevant to general practice, the RACGP convened a panel of experts (the Advisory Group), which comprised representatives from the original development consortium and new members. The result is Genomics in general practice, a suite of concise summaries on various clinical topics in genetics and genomics.
