Context: The Australian Genomics Health Alliance is research collaboration of organisations committed to integrating genomic medicine into healthcare in Australia. Initially targeting rare disease and cancer, the Australian Genomics Health Alliance is building the evidence and piloting solutions for the effective and equitable delivery of genomic medicine in Australia. The key strands of genomic research are summarised in our initial infographic.
Communications with patients and their family is delicate and confronting, both due to the complexity of the matter, and to the emotions parents and patients experience when a genomic test is advised.
The Australian Genomics Health Alliance commissioned Crealo to create infographics to support health professionals and their patients. The first infographic (below) is an overview of what genomic testing is, what it involves and what it means for them. The second infographic (right) explains genomic data sharing and consent.
The Australian Genomics Health Alliance is developing an online user platform called Control (“CTRL”), to give patients more visibility and easier control over their genomic data sharing consent. Crealo produced an explainer videographic (ie a powerpoint based animation), consistent with the style and illustrations developed with for the infographics.
