Genetic Associates 

 
     

genes.jpeg Clinical genetic services provide a comprehensive consultative service for the diagnosis and risk assessment of inherited and congenital disorders. Genetic disorders occur through all disciplines of medicine, from preconception to adulthood.  A genetics unit employs clinical geneticists, cultural advisors, administration staff as well as genetic associates. 
 
Genetic associates work with individuals, couples and families to provide risk assessment, genetic information and support.  Education is provided to families as well as to other health professionals.  An interdisciplinary case management approach is used and Associates work closely with consultants from other specialties and with genetic testing laboratories.
 
Accreditation from the Human Genetics Society of Australasia is necessary. This requires a minimum of 2 years supervised clinical practice following a postgraduate Diploma or Masters in genetic counselling.  
 
There are currently two genetic services in NZ, based in Auckland and Wellington, with a Christchurch office.  The NZ Registry for Familial Bowel Cancer is based in the Auckland office.
