Genetics in Primary Care Institute

The Genetics in Primary Care Institute (GPCI), a 3 year cooperative agreement between the Health Resources & Services Administration Maternal & Child Health Bureau and the American Academy of Pediatrics was established to address the "need to capitalize on this increased understanding as well as advancements in related technologies, so that quality personalized medicine—providing care that is tailored to the unique genetic traits and needs of the individual—can become the standard of care."

Webinars about GPCI

Speaking of webinars, there's a fantastic "Time Out for Genetics" monthly instructional webinar series which discusses many valuable topics in this interface between genetics and clinical care. The next webinar is scheduled for May 31 and the series runs through December, 2012.

To provide stakeholders with information for better understanding of the relevance of genetic medicine to primary care. To increase awareness and education regarding the provision of genetic medicine in primary care. To improve health care providers’ understanding of their roles and the roles of others related to the provision of genetic medicine in primary care settings.

Primary care clinicians, pediatricians, pediatric sub-specialists, family physicians, nurse practitioners, genetic counselors, geneticists, and other stakeholders.

The webinars will provide an introduction to the topic; explain the relevance to primary care; and showcase a few case examples of how the topic is relevant to primary care and can be integrated into everyday practice. Participants will be provided with practical take-home messages and strategies for implementation in practice.
