Genomics Essentials in Hematologic Malignancies

Genomic profiling is widely recognized as a key way to develop strategies for treating hematologic (and other) cancers. Are you looking for more information on genomic tests available and how to apply the results to clinical care? Are you confident with educating patients on the meaning of tests, testing results, and their implication on treatment decision? Participate in GENOM, a free education program created in partnership by ASH, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and The France Foundation.

The GENOM program offers interactive online learning modules for CME credit designed to help clinicians identify genomic principles, applications, technologies, and terminology relating to biomarker development. GENOM features two modules:

  • Foundations, an interactive series exploring the basics of genomics in the context of hematologic malignancies.
  • Applications, a series of disease-specific case-based modules exploring relevant biomarkers, available therapies, patient communication strategies and emerging research.
