Join the ACGT Network (for health professionals)


The Australian Cardiac Genetic Testing (ACGT) Network aims to build a network of clinicians, genetic counsellors, scientists and commercial testing centres across Australia to ensure that all aspects of cardiac genetic testing are performed in a standardised way that incorporates all the latest evidence.

Key goals of the network:
  • Bring together key players involved in cardiac genetic testing
  • Provide a discussion platform for difficult cases (including genetic and cardiac expertise)
  • Implement a standardised approach to variant classification
  • Access to pathogenicity group meetings with a high level of cardiac genetic expertise
  • Public access to curated cardiac genetic variants
  • Highly skilled cardiac genetic counsellors in key centres for variant interpretation
  • Regular opportunities for training and learning, including presentation of new research findings
  • Identify key research areas that will inform best practice
  • Develop best practice documents based on the group’s expertise and research evidence
