Excerpt

[T]he workshop committee decided to focus on several key topics, including the analysis, interpretation, and delivery of genomic information to health care providers plus workforce, ethical, and legal issues. This workshop report summarizes the speakers' presentations and the discussions that followed them. It begins by providing an overview of the current state of the field of genomic medicine, of how approaches to basic and clinical research are changing, and of areas in which steps can be taken immediately to build the necessary infrastructure (Chapter 2). The next two chapters describe the discussions that took place concerning the analysis and interpretation of genomic data (Chapters 3 and 4), while the following three chapters examine practical issues: the delivery of genomic information (Chapter 5), ethical and legal issues (Chapter 6), and developing the necessary workforce skills and knowledge (Chapter 7). The last chapter describes panel discussions on how to maintain curated databases, the role of the field in public health, and how each stakeholder could be involved in helping address the current challenges (Chapter 8).

The main objective of this workshop was to start a discussion of what needs to be done to prepare the necessary infrastructure and to address the various challenges so that patients will be able to benefit from genomics-based research.

Rapporteurs: Steve Olson, Sarah H. Beachy, Claire F. Giammaria, and Adam C. Berger
