Optimizing the utilization of next-generation sequencing in the delivery of genomic medicine
Tuesday, December 12, 2017 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM (Pacific Time)


Cost:  $195 

Description of Program Content:
Next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology has not only enhanced our ability to identify new disease causing genes, but also enabled a cost effective and efficient way for clinicians to test multiple genes simultaneously. This comes at a time when the value of a genetic diagnosis has never been greater. Once merely limited to confirming a clinical diagnosis, now genetic findings are increasingly impacting medical decisions. This talk will discuss how a clinician can optimize use of this technology and minimize burden while ensuring high quality test results.

 
Measurable Learning Objectives
At the end of this activity the participant will be able to:
1. Discuss the impact of next-generation sequencing on diagnosis of neurological conditions
2. Discuss the utilization of genetic testing algorithms
3. Describe the economic value of genetic testing in refractory epilepsy patients
