Precision Medicine for Your Practice: Expanded Carrier Screening

Learning Objectives
1. Determine whether expanded carrier screening is appropriate for the patient
2. Interpret results of carrier screening in the context of the patient characteristics
0.5 Credit CME

Given the spectrum of carrier screening panels now available, it is important to recognize the benefits and limitations of different types of tests. The results of expanded carrier screening (ECS) can provide valuable information, but may also produce some surprises for patients and providers alike. Precision Medicine for Your Practice is a series of short (20-30 min) online modules covering specific topics in genomics and precision medicine. In this module, participants will learn about the benefits and limitations of expanded carrier screening (ECS) in prenatal care for the purpose of facilitating patient decision-making. This online module will include five parts: overview information via an animated video; practice cases to facilitate learning-by-doing; “dig deeper”; logistics; and additional resources for those who are interested in more detail.
