Recruitment and consent training

We have designed a blended learning training course for anyone who will be identifying, recruiting and receiving consent from patients participating in the 100,000 Genomes Project. The course will include an introduction to the recruitment process, counselling for potential results and what they mean and the ethical and psychosocial implications for participants.

The course is delivered utilising the online HEE Genomics Education Programme Consent and Ethics and family history online modules with family history taking, consent and communication exercises delivered face to face.

To apply for a place, please contact the Genomics Ambassador for your area.
