An evening of talks and stimulating discussion for General Practitioners

‘Personalised’, ‘precision’ and ‘stratified’ medicine are familiar buzzwords, but will advancing genomic technology really make a difference to front line medicine any time soon?

Is personalised medicine that takes account of genetic risk any better than just knowing your patient?
How can you support your PCN’s role in early cancer diagnosis (Network Contract DES Guidance 2019/20 8.2), and what tools already exist in EMIS to help with this?

This evening of talks by academics and clinicians will explore the hype versus the reality, looking at what’s already happening in primary and secondary care, and what we can look forward to.

Sceptics welcome!
