HEE opens consultation on genomics nursing framework

Health Education England (HEE) has opened a consultation on the genomics nursing framework.

The framework has defined eight core competencies that the Genomics Education Programme believe that nurses will require as genomics becomes embedded in routine care. The framework has been developed in partnership with nurses.

Before the finalisation of the framework, stakeholders are invited to review and comment on the competencies.

The consultation is open until 8 November.

Professor Mark Radford, Chief Nurse for Health Education England, said: "Nurses will play an integral role in leading care in genomics - from clinical treatments and research through to supporting patients and their families undergoing genomic testing.

“They will need the right knowledge, skills and behaviour to help them [do] this effectively.

“I'd like to encourage all nurses to take the time to contribute to this important consultation. As genomics becomes embedded into routine care its important your views are heard to help shape the future of genomic education in nursing."
