Webinar: Wednesday 1 February, 1000–1115
Online, with free registration in advance
Consanguinity, or close relative marriage, is when any couple are related by blood to each other. 90% of children born to consanguineous families will not have a genetic condition, but for families that are at increased risk of this occurring, they may experience the tragedy of a child death.
In this free NCMD webinar, Nasaim Khan, the Clinical Lead for Equality, Ethnicity & Genetics at NHS England and NHS Improvement, will discuss the common issues professionals face when supporting consanguineous families and the actions that can be taken to help. She will discuss key points from the forthcoming NCMD guidance document on consanguinity, which is due to be published by NCMD in February 2023. The guidance is for professionals taking part in child death review meetings or Child Death Overview Panel meetings, and is intended to support consistent, robust conversations in these meetings to ensure that the right issues are highlighted, and the right information is recorded for local and national analysis.
There will also be time for questions at the end of the session, and you can submit questions in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The session is free and open to all with free registration in advance. We also issue continuing professional development certificates following attendance, upon request – contact Charlotte McClymont at UCL Partners for more details.
Please note that the session will be recorded and shared by NCMD to support future learning.
