Target Audience and Needs
Cardiologists, endocrinologists, and clinical geneticists need to receive regular updates on technological advances in genetic testing for cardiovascular, cardiometabolic, and related diseases. This series will focus on case discussions among faculty involved in the Cardiometabolic Genome Project at Baylor College of Medicine and clinical specialists and subspecialists affiliated with DHR Health in the Rio Grande Valley who are participating in the Cardiometabolic Precision Health Pilot in South Texas. The aim of the series is to enhance knowledge of cardiometabolic genetic testing, promote the application of genomic medicine tools in clinical settings, overcome barriers to point-of-care genetic counseling and testing, advance cardiovascular and cardiometabolic care, and improve patient outcomes.
Educational methods will include lectures, case presentations, and panel discussion.
At the conclusion of the session, the participants should be able to:
- Identify appropriate patient cases for cardiometabolic genetic testing.
- Interpret a genetic report, including the results of the gene panel, lipoprotein (a) variants identified, and the pharmacogenomics related to cardiometabolic care.
- Counsel a patient on the results of a cardiometabolic genetic report.
Participants may be asked to complete a session evaluation.
