Precision Medicine Landscape

Mapping the UK Precision Medicine Landscape

Health Education England has issued its first version of the Precision Medicine landscape within the UK for information and interest purposes, designed to help develop an understanding of the interaction between the key stakeholders involved.

As defined by the UK’s Programme Co-ordination Group in this field, ‘Precision Medicine refines our understanding of disease prediction and risk, onset and progression in patients, informing better selection and development of evidence based targeted therapies and associated diagnostics. Disease treatment and other interventions are better targeted to take into account the patient’s genomic and other biological characteristics, as well as health status, medications patients are already prescribed and environmental and lifestyle factors’.
