Provider engagement in precision oncology education: an exploratory analysis of online continuing medical education data.
Per Med 2019 May 1; 16(3):199-209
Given the rapid growth in genomic tests and targeted therapeutics, clinicians are likely to benefit from additional precision medicine education. Aim: This study evaluated the engagement and effectiveness of two interactive, case-based educational modules about somatic tumor testing, developed by the Jackson Laboratory, American Medical Association and Scripps Research Translational Institute, titled 'Precision Medicine for Your Practice'. Results: 402 participants enrolled in one or both free online continuing education modules, including physicians, nurses, scientists and genetic counselors and 41% completed module evaluations. Over 90% of respondents reported alignment of program with practice needs and planned to change their practice, including patient communication, identifying candidates for testing and/or interpreting test results. Conclusion: These findings support Precision Medicine for Your Practice as an effective education offering for diverse clinical professionals.
