Genomic applications in health care and disease prevention are increasingly relevant to the day-to-day delivery of care to the general public, and patients of all health care professionals. In many ways the internet is the most logical venue for the development, storage, and dissemination of educational resources for health professionals and their teachers. To address this growing need for genetic and genomic knowledge among health care professionals, in 2010 an online tool was launched to help educate the next generation of nurses, physician assistants, and now genetic counselors about this new frontier. The Genetics/Genomics Competency Center is a free, Web-based repository of peer reviewed curricular materials on genetics and genomics designed for all healthcare providers. To access this resource, visit www.g-2-c-2.org. Expansion of this tool to include other healthcare professionals, such as pharmacists and others is in progress. A Video Guide to G2C2 is available at: www.genome.gov/Careers
Educators and practicing clinicians can use the Genetic/Genomic Competency Center to find and download peer reviewed materials for use. They also can share their favorite genomic and genetic teaching resources with other educators by uploading materials, which will be regularly reviewed by the center's editorial board to ensure quality control. A rating system has also been implemented to facilitate identification by the busy educator of the most valuable resources. Visit the site to learn about the many components available at G2C2.
