At the conclusion of this conference, the participants should be able to:
Describe the principles of genomic medicine and whole genome sequencing. Discuss the uses, benefits, and limitations of genomic testing technologies. Recognize the implications of implementing genomic medicine in NICUs and PICUs.
Recognize when and how to refer patients for whole genome sequencing.
Identify tools and other practical resources for implementation of whole genome sequencing.
Determine early ascertainment for patients who may benefit from whole genome sequencing.
Recognize how to collaborate with an interdisciplinary team of health professionals.
This activity is intended for the Genomic Community.
The CME staff, staff/course coordinators, planning committee members, and CME committee reviewers do not have any relevant financial relationships to disclose.
It is the policy of University of California San Diego Continuing Medical Education to ensure that the content of accredited continuing education and related materials is accurate, balanced, objective, and scientifically justified. Education must be free of the influence or control of ineligible companies, and protect learners from promotion, marketing, and commercial bias. All persons in a position to control the content of accredited continuing education must disclose all financial relationships held with ineligible companies, prior to assuming a role in the activity. Those relationships deemed relevant to the education are mitigated prior to the activity through one of the following strategies, depending on the nature of relationship and the role of the person: 1) divesting the financial relationship, 2) altering the individual’s control over content, and/or 3) validating the planning decisions and/or content through independent peer review. All relevant financial relationships are mitigated prior to the activity and mitigation strategies and necessary steps for implementation are communicated to individuals prior to them assuming their role in the activity. Persons who refuse or fail to disclose are disqualified from participating in the activity. Activities are evaluated by participants and peer reviewers to determine if the content was free of bias and met acceptable scientificstandards. This information is considered in future activity planning.
The University of California, San Diego School of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
The University of California, San Diego School of Medicine designates this live activity for a maximum of 1.0AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
Continuing medical education (CME) providers are required by state Assembly Bills 1195 and 241, and the standards created by the California Medical Association (CMA), to include components that address cultural and linguistic competency and implicit bias in CME activities. The planners and presenters of this activity has been asked to provide meaningful consideration of these standards in the selection and presentation of content. Additional information and resources are available on the UC San Diego CME website.
Frontiers registrants receive free access to Genomics 101.
The RCIGM Genomics 101 course is designed to provide learners with a foundational knowledge of genomics and genomic medicine at the Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine.
