Dr James Kinross, Consultant Colorectal Surgeon at St Mary's Hospital, will speak about the future of personalised medicine made possible by listening to the patient's gut bacteria.
Our gastrointestinal tract harbours a dynamic and complex ecosystem of trillions of microbial cells, called the gut microbiome, which plays a critical role in maintaining our health.
Join us for this interactive webinar, as we explore:
- The extent of microbial variability between individuals, and within an individual over time and some of the factors influencing this variation
- How changes in gut bacteria in response to surgical or medical interventions can affect a patient's health and their individual response to interventions
- Comparisons between consumer tests available for gut microbiome and the sophisticated analytic techniques used in clinical laboratories
- The likely developments for future sampling and testing of the microbiome - including ingestible devices and home or point of care tests and how this may influence personalised medicine.
Chaired by David Taylor, Patient Lead of the RSM Digital Health Council and Vice-Chair of The Patients Association, join us for this interactive webinar, with plenty of opportunities to pose your questions to Dr James Kinross.
A certificate of attendance and CPD certificate with 1 CPD credit will be issued to those joining the webinar live. Certificates of attendance for CPD will be automatically issued after 7 days, but only where a delegate watches the webinar live in its entirety.
