Changes to Genomics Education Programme online learning
20 September 2017
Three of the Genomics Education Programme (GEP) courses; 100,000 Genomes Project: Preparing for the Consent Conversation, Introduction to Bioinformatics and Sample Processing & DNA Extraction are now available through the e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH) and eIntegrity platforms.
As genomic medicine moves beyond specialist clinics and into mainstream patient care, the GEP courses have been made available through these e-learning platforms to create a comprehensive online genomics education and training hub available for healthcare professionals both nationally and internationally.
Access to online courses
All NHS staff and GEP partners (including university partners) will continue to access the courses free of charge via the e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH) hub. Non-NHS staff can also continue to temporarily access the courses free of charge through e-LfH, however there will be a small charge after the temporary period ends and users must register with eIntegrity to continue to access the courses.
Over the coming months more GEP courses will be migrated onto the genomics education and training hub to meet the growing demand. All other tools and resources will continue to be available on the Genomics Education Programme website.
