Precision Medicine for Your Practice: Exploring Cancer Biomarker Testing (CME)

Self-paced • 0.5 credits

About this Course

Precision Medicine for Your Practice is a series of short (20-30 min), online modules covering specific topics in genomics and precision medicine. In this module, Exploring Cancer Biomarker Testing, participants will learn about large panel biomarker tests, which test for dozens or hundreds of genomic variants and other biomarkers that may be driving cancer growth and may be targetable with treatment. Learn about benefits, limitations, and challenges of using large panel biomarker tests using the five parts of this module: an animated video providing overview information; practice cases to facilitate learning-by-doing; "dig deeper" for more in-depth topics; and logistics and additional resources for more detail.
