ScotGEN started up in 2005 as a network of healthcare professionals, university academics and others involved in teaching genetics for healthcare in Scotland.
A key aim of ScotGEN is to provide a range of high quality teaching materials for genetics education. These include:
Learning Resources: including animations, video, diagrams and information sheets - designed to provide the educator with resources required to cover topics in genetic education. They may also be used by students for study purposes.
Case Studies: based on real situations, highlighting all aspects of living with a genetic disorder and its treatment. Health professionals', patients' and families' perspectives will be covered.
The Review of Genetics in Relation to Healthcare in Scotland, chaired by Sir Kenneth Calman and published in 2006, can be viewed here.
