Description

RESCHEDULED - NOW ON WEDNESDAY 5 JUNE 2019

Are you confident in your knowledge of genomics related to your clinical field? Do you know when to order a gene panel test or consider an exome test? Can you confidently interpret a variant of uncertain significance?


Genomics has the potential to improve diagnosis through identification of disease-causing genetic variants.


This workshop has been designed specifically for consultants and trainees working in adult neurology and neuropsychiatry, to upskill in the rapidly growing area of clinical genomics.


A short presentation will be followed by small group case-based discussion to introduce genomic testing and interpretation in the neurology clinic.

Workshop learning points include:

  • basic principles of genomics, including test types and limitations
  • using genomic testing for complex neurological conditions
  • how to interpret genomic test reports

Expert facilitators from Austin Hospital, VCGS and Royal Melbourne Hospital include neurologist Prof Sam Berkovic, clinical geneticist Prof Martin Delatycki and neuropsychiatrist Dr Dhamidu Eratne.


FREE WORKSHOP - refreshments provided from 6:00pm - 6:30pm. Workshop 6:30pm - 8:30pm.
