Raising awareness of and engagement with precision medicine

  1. 1. Charlie Rapple, Co-Founder, Kudos @charlierapple #TransformRes17 Raising awareness of and engagement with precision medicine
  2. 2. 22 Challenges in precision medicine Public engagement Prospective participants need to be aware of precision medicine Media reporting needs to be accurate Substantial (taxpayer) funding required over multiple years Broader understanding Participants need to understand risks and benefits Practitioners need to understand e.g. molecular genetics and biochemistry https://ghr.nlm.nih.gov/primer/precisionmedicine/challenges
  3. 3. How can help?
  4. 4. 44 What is it about? Precision medicine is an emerging approach to disease treatment and prevention that considers variability in patient genes, environment, and lifestyle. Why is it important? widespread discussion of these approaches has been lacking in the emergency care literature and many emergency physicians may be unfamiliar with them Personal perspective Hopefully this is a beginning towards advancing the use of precision medicine techniques in acute care medicine.
