CAGC Core Competencies

In 2006, the CAGC committed to developing a Core Competency framework to address the need for uniform practice standards for the profession. The CAGC Core Competencies include both the Practice Based Competencies and Knowledge Based Competencies and will serve as a platform for practice guidelines, training curricula, certification, continuing competency, re-entry to practice and other quality assurance initiatives for genetic counsellors in Canada.

These competencies have been written assuming genetic counsellors will eventually be regulated professionals.  In those jurisdictions where regulation occurs, these competencies may assist in the development of standards of practice for genetic counsellors.
