Best Practice Guidelines on Genetic and Genomic Medicine
07 . 10 . 2021
The Academy’s Professionalism and Ethics Committee (PEC) was established in March 2019 with the aim of further promoting professionalism and ethical practice among Fellows and specialist trainees. The Committee has formed different task forces to cover specific areas in which relevant best practice guidelines will be developed, where appropriate, from the perspectives of professionalism and ethical clinical practice for medical and dental practitioners.
The Task Force on Genetics and Genomics (G&G) formed under the PEC has developed a set of Best Practice Guidelines on Genetic and Genomic Medicine with a view to providing a clear ethical framework for the sound adoption and application of genetic technology and the many benefits it brings.
Fellows may read and download the set of Guidelines here.
The set of Guidelines is for guidance only and not intended to be prescriptive. It is developed from the perspectives of professionalism and ethics, on the basis of which medical and dental practitioners should exercise their clinical judgement, with regard to all clinical and other circumstances.
