GCOF The Patient

The Patient was another one of the key themes explored by the Genetics Clinic of the Future.

The session was lead by Cor OosterwijkRalf SudbrakFrancesco Lescai and Maud Radstake. All have distinguished careers in healthcare policy, bioinformatics and areas relating to genetics. Their diverse expertise provided an informed and engaging starting point for the interactive session.

This fourth poster explores the ways which patients can be actively involved in concrete proposals. Ideas such as establishing a DNA databank governed by patients were put forward during the workshop (run by UMC Utrecht and The Responsible Innovation Collective).

DNA Digest is excited to be able to show you the full graphic (©Ruben Maalman Illustrations) investigating the changing role of the patient in the Genetics Clinic of the Future. Openness in healthcare science and access to data is obviously something which we are passionate about. Initiatives that will provide greater trust in this area are of great interest and importance. Increased patient involvement in these areas is something that could provide many benefits. Indeed the patient is ‘the main entrance’ to the Genetics Clinic of the Future. Take a look at the full poster and see what you think on the topic.
