Implementing genetic education in primary care: the Gen-Equip programme

A new free resource providing webinars and online modules that enable primary care professionals to improve their knowledge and skills in genetics – including familial cancers.

The Gen-Equip project brought together specialists from primary care, clinical genetics and patient organisations from 6 European Union countries. These specialists developed online case-based modules that were designed around a typical consultation in primary care. There are 9 modules in total and topics covered include familial cancer, a child with a genetic condition and pregnancy or reproduction-related scenarios. These modules are now available online and are accessible free of charge. In addition, the authors have also provided a series of short online webinars that cover the foundation knowledge and skills needed when considering genetics and genetic testing in primary care.
