Summary A task and finish group comprising ten senior nurses and midwives with interest and/or expertise in genetics/genomics was set up to consider the future of genetics/genomics in relation to nursing and midwifery. The purpose of the task and finish group was to identify key issues and potential solutions concerning the future of genetics/genomics in relation to nursing and midwifery and to provide a report to the Nursing and Midwifery Professional Advisory Board to consider and use to inform its responses and future actions. The group conducted its review through a mix of face to face meetings, telephone discussions and email. Discussions were wide-ranging and considered the key drivers, including the scope of the science, patient expectations, the professional context, education and training and ethical considerations. Real life scenarios at different lifestages were used to stimulate discussion.
