|New ACMG Points to Consider on Professional Responsibilities Regarding the Provision, Publication, and Dissemination of Patient Phenotypes
An important new ACMG Points to Consider document on “Professional responsibilities regarding the provision, publication, and dissemination of patient phenotypes in the context of clinical genetic and genomic testing” is available in the Publications Section of the ACMG website. The statement can be found here.
This Points to Consider serves as an opportunity to consider ways for improving patient care. Maximizing the provision, publication and dissemination of phenotypic, genotypic, and other clinical information across disciplines will ultimately benefit patients. The statement describes a best-practice perspective focused on the best interest of the patient and recognition of the roles of laboratories, clinicians, and journals toward this endeavor. The document expands on the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics’ recent position statements on genomic data sharing and standards for the interpretation of sequence variants.
