Establishing genomics within clinical practice poses many challenges. NSW Ministry of Health commissioned this review to identify frameworks that have been used to support the translation of genomic research into clinical practice. Although the literature on the use and evaluation of frameworks that have actively translated genomics from laboratory to clinical settings is limited the authors were able to draw out key themes and recommendations for NSW and possible future directions, including: a crucial need for formal evaluation of the implementation of genomic medicine in real-world settings, the need for collaboration across disciplines, and the importance of supporting non-geneticist specialist medical professionals to integrate genomics into their practice.
