Pediatric neurology providers and patients have more options than ever before for genetic testing. Evidence is growing for the utility of genetic testing for a range of conditions for the purpose of diagnosis and optimizing treatment. While genetic testing can be a powerful tool in certain situations, not all genetic testing is the same. Broader tests assess more genes and increase the possibility of a diagnosis, but also confer specific benefits, limitations, and challenges in results interpretation and counseling.
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, Genetic Testing in Pediatric Neurology, participants will learn the benefits and limitations of genetic testing for pediatric neurological conditions. This online module will include five parts: overview information via an animated video; practice cases to facilitate learning-by-doing; and "dig deeper," logistics, and additional resources for those who are interested in more detail.
