Centre for Genetic Education Resources:

Please see links to a series to educate paediatricians on genomic testing for childhood syndromes, there are the four videos and slides that have been uploaded to the Centre for Genetics Education (CGE) website.

The videos can be accessed here or at https://www.genetics.edu.au/health-professionals/health-professionals/genomics-1/intellectual-disability-genomic-testing on the CGE website.

Please note the videos are best viewed on Google or Google Chrome  – they cannot be viewed on Internet explorer.

They are hoping to track usage and feedback on these materials and the CGE has uploaded a survey for paediatricians to complete.

Resources related to the video content can also be found on the CGE website here.
