Implementation of rapid whole genome sequencing (rWGS) in the Intensive Care Unit: Where are we and where do we go from here?
Tuesday, September 18, 2018 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM (Pacific Time)


Description of Program Content:

The presentation will outline the experience at Rady Children’s Institute for Genomic Medicine (RCIGM) in conducting multiple internal and external clinical research studies to investigate the clinical and economic utility of rapid genomic sequencing for infants in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). A review of the current literature will be presented as well as selected case studies to highlight the clinical utility of the rWGS testing approach. The advantages and challenges of rWGS will be discussed.

Measurable Learning Objectives 
At the end of this activity the participant will be able to:
1. Identify the benefits of rapid genomic testing
2. Understand the current state of genomic testing and gaps existing in the literature
3. Assess the future directions and what data is needed for wide spread adoption of rapid genomic testing in the NICU
