Delivery of Results

Although personalized medicine can be seen as the evolution of medicine, rather than a revolution, it certainly brings new challenges in terms of the delivery and understanding of the results. This is not only true for the patients, which needs to understand complex genomic results, but also for the medical professionals who often haven’t been exposed to this type of information before.

This session will explore various approaches that have been developed in order to increase the efficacy of personalized medicine approaches.
