WA Health consultation on genetics in primary care

The WA Department of Health and Genetic Services of Western Australia (GSWA) invite primary care providers to participate in a public consultation about the future state of genetic service delivery in WA.

GSWA are keen to hear from GPs, other primary care health professionals and non-GP specialists about their experience ordering genetic tests such as non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) and/or managing patients with genetic conditions via WA Health’s Clinician and Support Service survey.

This survey is anonymous and takes approximately 10 minutes to complete.

Online focus group
Tuesday 29 August
7.00-8.30 PM (AWST)

GPs who order genetic tests such as NIPT and/or manage patients with genetic conditions are invited to register to attend a focus group about the current and future role of primary care in the provision of clinical genetics services in WA. The discussion will focus on the opportunities and priorities for GSWA, but participants do not have to refer to GSWA to be eligible to attend.

Places are limited so please register to participate ASAP: https://forms.office.com/r/25qVFzckwM

GPs can claim self-logged CPD points and receive remuneration for attending the online focus group.
