The GenoNurse Model as a Framework for nursing education: International Perspectives
Thursday, November 2, 2023
12:00 - 3:00 pm

GenoNurse is an Erasmus+ CP project funded by the European Union involving Finland, Slovenia, Italy, and Ireland with an evolving community of interested stakeholders internationally.

Purpose: The overall aim of the GenoNurse workshop is to present and discuss the GenoNurse model, GenoNurse Roadmap, GenoNurse community all of which have been co-developed through an Erasmus+ CP project to underpin improvements in the education of nursing students. The workshop will seek the perspectives of participants on the GenoNurse model and its application in an international context.

Target audience: Nursing students, practitioners, educators, researchers, and policymakers.

Organizing framework: Within this workshop, several interlinking themes will be discussed including: the GenoNurse Model, reviews of literature relating to genetic and genomic literacy and genetic and genomic competencies, ethical issues in genomic-related care, and teaching pedagogies in genetics and genomics. A world café style co-constructed sociological methodology will be used to elicit perspectives from workshop participants and for further conceptual verification and validation of the model. Such perspectives will be used to inform further development of the GenoNurse model and its application.

Conclusions: It is anticipated that this workshop will share perspectives gleaned from an international collaborative project whilst offering the opportunity to conference delegates to be involved in the conceptual verification and validation of a model which will support the education of future generations of nurses in the important area of genetics and genomics.

Acknowledgment: In addition to the presenters, the GenoNurse project includes the following people: Essi Ylistalo, Lucija Matić, Tina Kamenšek, Maria Caples, Mari Laaksonen, Cristina Petrucci, and Loreto Lancia.

Keywords: genetics, genomics, lessons learnt, nursing students, validation

Utilization of Pharmacogenomics in Clinical Practice
Thursday, November 2, 2023
3:00 - 6:00 pm

Pharmacogenomics has a strong potential to improve patient outcomes. Nurses play a critical role in pharmacogenomics’ research and therapeutics and clinical care for patients. In this Pre-Congress Workshop, the faculty will share their extensive knowledge and experience with pharmacogenomics to inform current and future knowledge for nurses in genomics. The workshop is comprehensive for novel and advanced genomic nurses, and will cover the basics of pharmacogenomics, implications of pharmacogenomics testing, current use of pharmacogenomics therapeutics, and its utilization in clinical practice.

Target audience: Practicing and advanced practice nurses

Organizing Framework: In this Pre-Congress Workshop, the faculty will share their extensive knowledge and experience with pharmacogenomics to inform current and future knowledge for nurses to utilize in clinical practice.

Conclusions: At the end of the session the participants will be able to discuss the clinical importance of pharmacogenomic testing in the clinical setting, the role of the healthcare provider, and pharmacogenomic testing and utilization in pharmacological management.

Keywords: Genetics, genomics, pharmacogenetics, genetic testing, pharmacology
