Call for Pre-ConGRESS WORKSHOP sessions 

2022 ISONG World Congress 
Holistic approaches to precision health: Intersection of research, education, practice, and policy

The application deadline is Monday, May 9, 2022.

The International Society for Nursing in Genetics (ISONG) Congress will be hosting Pre-Congress workshops to address critical education in genomics. The workshops will be held the day prior to Congress on Thursday, November 10, 2022, at the Washington Duke Inn in Durham, North Carolina, USA.

The planning committee aims to select a mixture of topics that will reflect research, education, and clinical practice. Individuals, teams, and panels that address a practical application of a topic with a Q&A session will be considered for acceptance. Members of the ISONG community have expressed interest in topics such as:

Foundational Genetics/Genomics for Nurses
Clinical Application of Genetics/Genomics
(Disease-focused [e.g. oncology or cardiovascular disease] or broad)
Pharmacogenetics and Pharmacogenomics
Best Practices in Genetics/Genomics Education for Nurses 
Omics Research or Methodology

To apply to present a workshop, please be prepared with the relevant data below. Please do not begin the application until you have the proposal prepared – you cannot save the Google form and come back to it later. We suggest writing it on a separate document and then copying and pasting into the application.  Proposal applications should include:

  • Purpose: Clearly state the purpose of the workshop
  • Target audience (e.g., graduate students, practicing nurses)
  • Organizing Framework: Describe flow of contents emphasizing major issues to be discussed, including learning and engagement activities
  • Conclusions: Present summary of knowledge gleaned from issues discussed
