Presentation Description

Prof Martin Delatycki, A/Prof Michelle Farrar, Dr James Best and Prof Jon Emery form a panel to discuss reproductive carrier screening – what is it? Who is it for? And what do GPs need to know?

  • The GP’s role in offering to screen patients, including a breakdown of all the available options – Prof Jon Emery will provide a video role-play showing how this can be done
  • The available resources for GPs and patients, including RACGP CPD modules on the Beware the Rare website: https://bewaretherare.com.au
