Personalised Medicine: The Future for Nurses 2020

Interested in understanding the fundamentals of genomics and the significance it will have within nursing and healthcare from 2020 and beyond?
To mark the World Health Organization’s Year of the Nurse and Midwife, UHB is hosting a FREE conference for nursing staff working at BHP member organisations.
See how new scientific discoveries learned from examining over 100,000 genomes may be applied to the care of patients and discover its growing importance to healthcare.
NHS England’s Chief Scientific Officer Professor Sue Hill will address the conference which will be opened by UHB’s executive Chief Nurse, Lisa Stalley-Green.
Get insights from the West Midlands Familial Hypercholesterolaemia Service and the British Heart Foundation and hear from the Regional Cystic Fibrosis nurses on the application of genomics to their field.
There will also be a look at genomics and personalised medicine’s use in cancer care and midwifery.
The conference is free to attend for all nursing staff at UHB and Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
We look forward to seeing you there.
