Description

 

July 25, 4:00 – 5:00 pm ET
Evidence Based Guidelines Webinar 201: Exome and Genome Sequencing for Pediatric Patients with Congenital Anomalies or Intellectual Disability

 

Course Description:

For Evidence Based Guidelines Webinar Series 201: Exome and Genome Sequencing for Pediatric Patients with Congenital Anomalies or Intellectual Disability, join us for a one-hour webinar that will explore in detail the evidence used in the review process, how the evidence was translated into a recommendation using the Grading of Recommendations, Assessment, Development, and Evaluation (GRADE) framework, and how the guideline can implemented in genetics and non-genetics practice.

 

 Target Audience:

Healthcare Providers (genetics providers, non-genetics providers who have attended the 101 webinar, healthcare providers who manage patients with congenital anomalies and/or intellectual disabilities)

 

 

Learning Objectives:

 

At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:

  • Explain the general framework used to develop the recommendation.
  • Describe two pieces of evidence used to support the recommendation.
  • Identify patients that may benefit from exome or genome sequencing and when in the diagnostic workup exome or genome sequencing should be considered.

Series Information

Evidence Based Guidelines Webinar Series: Exome and Genome Sequencing for Pediatric Patients with Congenital Anomalies or Intellectual Disability The Evidence-Based Guidelines Webinar Series, supported by the National Coordinating Center for the Regional Genetics Networks (NCC) and ACMG, is a two-part webinar series for each of the ACMG Evidence-Based Guidelines that will provide an overview and application of the evidence-based guideline (101) and then provide a deeper-diver into the evidence used to support the recommendation (201).

The two webinars’ dates and topics include:

  • June 24 - Evidence Based Guidelines Webinar 101: Exome and Genome Sequencing for Pediatric Patients with Congenital Anomalies or Intellectual
  • July 25 - Evidence Based Guidelines Webinar 201: Exome and Genome Sequencing for Pediatric Patients with Congenital Anomalies or Intellectual Disability

Financial Disclosures

Accredited Continuing Education Financial Disclosure

The American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide Accredited Continuing Education (ACE) for physicians. ACMG is an organization committed to improvement of patient care and general health by the incorporation of genetics and genomics into clinical practice.

ACMG has implemented the following procedures to ensure the independence of ACE activities from commercial influence/promotional bias, the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) requires that providers (ACMG) must be able to demonstrate that: 1) everyone in a position to control the content of an ACE activity has disclosed all financial relationships that they have had in the past 24 months with ineligible* companies; 2) ACMG has implemented a mechanism to mitigate relevant financial relationships; and 3) all relevant financial relationships with ineligible companies are disclosed to the learners before the beginning of the educational activity. The learners must also be informed if no relevant financial relationships exist.

*Ineligible companies are defined as those whose primary business is producing, marketing, selling, re-selling, or distributing healthcare products used by or on patients.
