Diseases and disease processes are complex and involve many interactions within the genome, across metabolic pathways and between the individual and the environment. Such considerations are important if the consequences of variations observed within an individual’s genome are to be effectively assessed. Rapid advancements in areas such as functional genomics and systems biology are now providing new insights into such processes. This module builds and extends the knowledge of the Clinical Scientist in HSST with respect to the epidemiology and genetic basis of disease while introducing and developing areas such as clinical bioinformatics, personalised medicine, e- health, health informatics and genomics applied within a healthcare science specialism.
By the end of this module the Clinical Scientist in HSST will be able to analyse and synthesise their understanding of clinical bioinformatics, genomics and personalised medicine, and apply their knowledge to the practice of their HSST specialism. They will be able to identify opportunities to apply their learning to develop and improve services and the information provided to patients and critically evaluate their own response to both normal and complex situations using the professional attributes and insights required of a Consultant Clinical Scientist.
By the end of the training period the Clinical Scientist in HSST will be able to analyse, synthesise and critically apply their expert knowledge with respect to genomics and personalised medicine and health informatics applied to their specialism, including:
By the end of this module the Clinical Scientist in HSST will be expected to critically reflect and apply in practice a range of clinical and communication skills with respect to genomics in order to advise and communicate effectively with patients, relevant clinicians, patients and the public, and other healthcare professionals, and will utilise and apply, as appropriate, knowledge of genomics and clinical bioinformatics within clinical practice keeping abreast of development that apply to their area of specialist practice as a Consultant Clinical Scientist.
By the end of this module the Clinical Scientist in HSST will be expected to evaluate their own response to both normal and complex situations, demonstrating the professional attributes and insights required of a Consultant Clinical Scientist working within the limits of professional competence referring as appropriate to senior staff and will:
