Podcast: what does genomics mean for nurses?

Angela Cazeaux, Vicky Cuthill and Mark Radford discuss how nursing can harness the power of genomics

How does genomics affect nursing? And how can it be used by the nursing profession to guide patient care and improve health outcomes?

These questions and more are answered in the latest episode of the Nursing Standard podcast.

Produced in partnership with Health Education England’s Genomics Education Programme, it seeks to demystify genomics and coincides with the launch of a week of action, from 16 to 20 March, aimed at nurses.

The podcast hears from Angela Cazeaux, British Heart Foundation specialist nurse based at University Hospitals Southampton NHS Foundation Trust, and Vicky Cuthill, lead nurse/manager at the Polyposis Registry, St Mark’s Hospital in London.

An overview of the topics is provided by Mark Radford, interim chief nurse at Health Education England and deputy chief nursing officer for England, NHS England and NHS Improvement.
