Contact: Carolyn Martin and Diana Nelson Louden
Contact: 206-221-3449 - https://nnlm.gov/classes/geneticinformation - Pacific Northwest region
The intersections of genetics and health now include precision medicine, pharmacogenomics, and direct-to-consumer genetic testing. This class will focus on the information needs of clinicians who are incorporating genetic information into their practice, as well as the information needs of consumers who are making sense of genetic information as it relates to their health. We will (1) describe uses of genetic information in health care; (2) discuss challenges facing clinicians, consumers, and librarians working with rapidly changing genetic information; and (3) provide an introduction to selected genomic medicine resources; and (4) give participants experience using NCBI genomic medicine resources to answer clinically-oriented questions. The course will be suitable for librarians who are relatively unfamiliar with genetics and genetics resources.
