Five Things to Consider When Ordering NIPT

GenomeWebinar

Senior Genetic Counsellor,

Numerous companies now offer non-invasive prenatal screening (testing), many on different technology platforms. Healthcare professionals face the new challenge of ensuring their patients are appropriately counselled on the limitations and benefits of NIPT. However, this is complex, as the specific technical differences of the platforms alter the counselling.

Further, NIPT platforms are continuing to evolve, providing increasing options for patients and adding to the complexity of counselling.

This webinar is focused on the genetic counselling aspects of NIPT on all platforms, in order to assist healthcare professionals in their discussions with their patients.
