Perspectives of precision medicine

Dr Eddie Blair

Precision medicine is a move away from a ‘one size fits all’ approach to the treatment and care of patients with a particular condition, to one which uses new approaches to better manage patients’ health and targets therapies to achieve the best outcomes in the management of a patient’s disease or predisposition to disease.

Precision medicine is the exciting and evolving new branch of medicine that is seeing medical decisions, practices, interventions and/or products being tailored to the individual patient based on their predicted response or risk of disease. New possibilities are emerging as novel approaches, such as whole genome sequencing, data and informatics, and wearable technology are becoming increasingly utilised.

In this exciting conversation event, we are honoured to be joined by three of the leaders in the field to hear their views on the current state of the science and practice of precision medicine and their projections for the future. The audience will be given the opportunity to join the discussion, give their own ideas and learn from these varied perspectives.

Approved for 2 CPD points.
