Precision Medicine For Your Practice: Exome Testing for Diagnosis

Learning Objectives
1. Identify how to communicate with patients about the benefits, risks, and limitations of exome testing and expectations for an appointment with a genetic expert
2. Recognize how to communicate with patients about positive, negative, and uncertain results from exome testing
3. Recognize how to collaborate with a genetic expert throughout the exome testing process, including initial referral and ongoing patient management
0.5 Credit CME

Precision Medicine for Your Practice is a series of short (20-30 minute) online modules covering specific topics in genomics and precision medicine. In this module, learn how to collaborate with both patients and genetic specialists around exome testing. This module will help primary care providers and other specialists identify patients who may benefit from exome testing, talk with such patients and families about exome testing to support them in their decisions about genetic counseling and genetic testing, recognize clinically significant exome test results for use in patient care, and collaborate with genetic experts in ongoing patient management and evaluation. The module has five parts: overview via an animated video; practice cases to facilitate learning-by-doing; “dig deeper” for more in-depth topics; logistics; and additional resources for more detail.
