The NSW Health Genomics Strategy articulates a shared vision for clinical genomics in NSW, promoting collaboration to avoid fragmentation and duplication of resources. Genomic technology can provide greater accuracy in determining disease risk, assessing diagnosis and prognosis, and informing the selection of therapeutic options for care. It is already being applied in a range of clinical contexts in NSW, raising strategic challenges and choices to be addressed if the promise of precision medicine and personalised care are to be fully realised.
The Strategy makes recommendations and describes pathways to implementation. To achieve this, NSW will build on current partnerships with service providers, clinicians, researchers, industry and consumers. Working together, we can achieve the NSW vision for clinical genomics.
