Genomics Learning Centre

The Genomics Learning Centre is the central location where you will find information on the developing projects and initiatives from the Genomic Institute, including our various training programs. The Genomic Institute projects include workforce evaluation and planning, collaborative learning initiatives, digital capacity support and a genomics education program, all designed to enable responsive genomics implementation and support a genomics inclusive, learning healthcare system.

Education Framework

The Genomic Institute has developed an overarching framework for which they are developing training. The framework represents the overall educational strategy of the institute and has been developed after extensive expert consultation. Download a copy of the Framework.

Other learning

The Genomic Institute is currently planning a Genomics in Practice Seminar Series. The seminars are aimed at enabling collaboration in genomics and assist in the acceleration of implementing genomics into practice. Each seminar will present a clinical project and research project, both aligned in genomics field, to share and communicate successful journeys in improved genomic care.

If you are interested to attend the seminar series or to contribute to the organising committee, please contact GenomicInstitute_Education@health.qld.gov.au

Seminar Series Coordinator

Rehan Villani
Genomics Educator and Resource Coordinator, Genomic Institute, MNHHS 

The Genomics Institute is working with clinicians across the state to identify workforce development pathways to embed genomics knowledge into clinical practice.  The initial focus has identified the key roles and responsibilities of nurses and midwives who are supporting their patients along the genomic testing pathway.  By identifying key nursing and midwifery roles the requisite knowledge required to safely undertake these activities and the principles of succession management will be addressed through the creation of a Genomic Work Unit Development Map and Workforce Scoping Report which will be published shortly. 

Project Lead 

Jessica Schluter 
Nursing & Midwifery Nurse Educator, Workforce Development Project, Genomic Institute, MNHHS 

Genomics relies on digital capacity, both infrastructure and expertise. This includes forward planning for the responsible and efficient/streamlined collection, storage, use and management of genomic data.

The Genomic Institute is supporting genomics digital capacity development by:

  • Supporting the adoption of the National Approach to Genomic Information Management (NAGIM) project blueprint.
  • Developing digital projects for improved genomics use
  • Enabling demonstrator and research project-based implementation analysis for digital capacity development
  • Informing process for sustainability through demonstrator projects, including health technology assessment and financial audit
  • Developing digital training supporting workforce capacity building in digital genomics.

The Whole Genomics Sequencing Partnership Program project is a demonstrator project within the Genomic Institute program, which is informing digital capacity development.

You will also find the developing educational resources in the Education Program, see the Digital Genomics Program .

Are you interested in genomics? Would you like to support increased use of genomics in your local area?

We support the development of local genomics training.

We are happy to organise an on-location education session for Queensland health practitioners, so please contact us if you are interested to host a training session in your local area. We will tailor the training to your local area, and work with you to enable the best and most appropriate training approach.

Contact GenomicInstitute_Eucation@health.qld.gov.au to investigate or book your local area genomics training initiative.

Genomic Institute Education

If you are interested in participating in or contributing to The Genomic Institute educational program, please contact GenomicInstitute_Education@ health.qld.gov.au.
