“Health-care professionals cannot be expected to adapt to new ways of approaching patients and coping with new technology unless they are suitably trained”, a high-level conference on personalised medicine heard in Brussels this week.
Delegates were told that it is vital to develop training for professionals whose disciplines are essential to the successful development of personalised medicine to promote the shared understanding and collaborative development of necessary tools. “To this end, employers, professional organizations, certification entities, regulatory agencies, and others will have to be involved in effecting the necessary changes,” the conference heard.
