Australian Genomics is examining how useful genomic testing is for the diagnosis and management of a number of medical conditions and how it affects patient care.
This helps us to determine when we should use a genomic test and the most appropriate and cost-effective way of providing genomic testing to patients in the future.
If you have agreed to participate in one of our clinical flagship studies, you will be guided through a consent process, which includes a discussion on some of the unique aspects of having genomic testing compared to other more routine laboratory tests, as well as being asked whether you agree to share you / your child’s samples and genome data.
If you have any questions around consent, would like to view a consent form, or discuss your participation in our study, please contact us and we will connect you with a study genetic counsellor.
If you are a health professional and would like to view our consent forms, please contact us to be sent a sample consent form.
