BACKGROUND

This online survey has been compiled by a steering group of practising GPs and academics from the University of Nottingham to explore and identify the most effective information needed to appropriately manage patients presenting with genetics and genomic issues.

Genomics is the study of the whole genome and how it works, and has entered all aspects of medicine.  There are a range of available educational and information resources that can help GPs to manage patients presenting with genomic issues.  So that we can improve understanding of how and where GPs access information about genomics within a consultation, we would like to invite you to complete this brief survey based on 4 short scenarios of the sort of patients who may consult with you.

Please read the information sheet on the next page and then tick both boxes to confirm that you:

i) have read the information sheet

ii) are a GP currently working within primary care

Thank you in advance for completing the survey which should take no longer than 15 minutes.
