Continued advances within genomics and the application of genomic technologies, has resulted in developments in diagnosis, treatment and care management, as well as broadened the cope for research to enable an enhanced understanding and cancer care for patients.

As healthcare professionals working within cancer care it's vital that there is an understanding of the impact of genomics so that patients are informed, and involved in treatment decisions in relation to their ongoing care needs.

The Alliance has recently been involved in the national lung cancer and Lynch Syndrome genetic testing pathway projects.
