By increasing awareness of genetics guidelines and recommendations for primary care providers to improve referral practices for genetic services, MGN will increase the number of individuals who have access to genetic services.
The Provider Education Project will develop Maintenance of Certification Part 4 quality improvement modules on genetics-related care for primary care providers. The modules will target existing genetics guidelines and recommendations with poor uptake, and include materials on working with diverse populations. Each module will have local, regional, and national impact and dissemination potential. This work will result in the right people (patients/families, primary care providers, geneticists) talking with each other more often with better effect.
What is the Provider Education Workgroup’s Charge?
- Develop educational materials for primary care providers that will result in the right people (patients/families, primary care providers, geneticists) talking to each other more often and with better effect
- Work with state chapters of national organizations to pilot our model within one state, expand to states across our region, and promote national use
