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.
