Advances in genomic sequencing technology are promising a revolution in how diseases are diagnosed and treated. Understanding how these advances are managed and communicated to patients, families and wider society will benefit from empirical genetic counselling research. This new conference will provide a forum that facilitates active engagement between international researchers and practitioners to explore the evidence that guides genetic counselling and the communication of genetics in mainstream medicine, thereby enhancing clinical practice. The conference will bring together academics (socials scientists, psychologists and geneticists) and practicing clinicians (genetic counsellors, genetic nurses, clinical/medical geneticists, and others using genetic technology in their practice).
