The Inter-Society Coordinating Committee (ISCC) held its fifth in-person meeting on January 14, 2016, in Bethesda, Maryland. The Co-Chairs, Drs. Bob Wildin and Ann Karty, provided this summary of themes of the meeting:
Theme I: Expanding patient safety and implementing genomic educational activities: ways to provide point-of-care education to health professionals; real-life examples, context, and results from non-geneticist doctors working with patients
- Michael Murray: "Primary Provider 'Just in Time' Education that Supports Screening Healthy Volunteers with Genomics"
- Sam Johnson: "Genomics and Patient Safety: Practical Applications for Pharmacogenomics"
Theme II: What has been learned through experience about provider education
- Dr. Jeff Weitzel: "City of Hope Intensive Course and Clinical Cancer Genomics Community of Practice: Multimodal Professional Development for Community Clinicians"
- Jeannette McCarthy: "A Practical Approach to Precision Medicine"
Theme III: What's new in provider education
- Kate Reed and Katie Johansen-Taber: "Collaborating on online genomics education for providers"
- Steve Singer: "Update on Maintenance of Certification and Continuing Medical Education Developments"
- New avenues for future exploration: International Genomic Education
All participants came from different perspectives and left the meeting with different take-away messages.
