Welcome to ScotGEN's general information pages. If you are a patient or carer you are most welcome to look at our resources. In addition, we recomend that you visit the Genetic Alliance UK website www.geneticalliance.org.uk
First, please register with ScotGEN. Doing so will enable you to become a full member of ScotGEN, giving access to the resources available on these pages. Registering will ensure that you receive our bi-annual Newsletter and regular news Bulletins directly by email.
You have access to a variety of resources via the menu on the left of this page. Information Pages are being developed just now and we plan to add more in the coming months.
Our Learning Resources are divided into 5 subject areas:
Under each subject you will find useful learning objects such as animations and factsheets, for you to view, download and print out.
Additional information, including links to many other websites, can be found under Related Resources.
Evaluation and Feedback
When you download a learning object from the ScotGEN site you will be invited to give us feedback on it. This will enable us to make changes or create new learning objects, as required.
A feedback form will be sent by email 4 weeks after you have downloaded the learning object.
Please contact us if you would like to make any comments about the site. All your comments are welcome and will help us tailor the site to your needs.
We also provide a regulated Message Board, which we encourage you to use. (You must be registered with ScotGEN to have access to this).
