Revised in 2010, as part of the Fit for Practice in the Genetics/Genomics Era project there are now separate competence frameworks for nursing and midwifery.
The revised competences build on the original combined framework for nurses, midwives and health visitors that was produced in 2003 by the Genomics Policy Unit and the All Wales Medical Genetics Service for the Department of Health and endorsed by the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
