NIH launches online 'toolkit' to help nurses bring genomics into patient care

The National Human Genome Research Institute, a program of the National Institutes of Health, launched a website to support nursing leaders looking to integrate genomics into patient care.

The Method for Introducing a New Competency Genomics website comprises more than 100 resources to help "the need for healthcare professionals to stay abreast with the rapidly changing healthcare environment," according to an NIH statement.

The project provides resources to help nursing leaders build awareness about genomics at their facilities and prepare their clinical teams prior to deploying genomic testing and treatments. It also showcases video testimonials from health administrators and educators who have successfully offered patients personalized care through genomics.

"The MINC toolkit is a starting point for healthcare providers who want to promote genomic integration into practice to benefit their patients," said Laura Lyman Rodriguez, PhD, director of the division of policy, communication and education at NHGRI.
