Personalised medicine

  • Personalised medicine is an emerging practice of medicine that uses an individual’s genetic and environmental profile to guide clinical decisions about the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease and has been refined and its scope expanded to include the approaches, decisions and practices in medical facilities, resulting in the new term ‘precision medicine’. 

Information for our community

  • Metro South Health patients who are interested in understanding if ATGC can provide genome sequencing as part of their treatment are encouraged to discuss personalised medicine options further with their treating medical practitioner.
