Innovations in Service Delivery in the Age of Genomics: Workshop Summary by Institute of Medicine, Roundtable on Translating Genomic-Based Research for Health, Board on Health Sciences Policy (Paperback, 2009)
New discoveries in gemics--that is, the study of the entire human geme--are changing how we diagse and treat diseases. As the trend shifts from genetic testing largely being undertaken for rare genetic disorders to, increasingly, individuals being screened for common diseases, general practitioners, pediatricians, obstetricians/gynecologists, and other providers need to be kwledgeable about and comfortable using genetic information to improve their patients' health. To address these changes, the Roundtable on Translating Gemic-Based Research for Health held the public workshop Invations in Service Delivery in the Age of Gemics on July 27, 2008.
