Synopsis:

Named a 2013 Doody's Core Title!

REFRESH YOUR GENETIC KNOWLEDGE AND ENHANCE YOUR PATIENT CARE

We now know that genetic factors can cause disease or affect an individual's susceptibility or resistance to disorders and even to treatment. To provide the best nursing care, it is therefore essential that practitioners and students have a basic knowledge of the science of genetics and how it affects the major areas of nursing expertise.

To address this need, Dr. Felissa Lashley has created this "essentials" guide specifically for nurses. From genetic factors and trends affecting health care today, to the more complex discussions of human variation, every genetic topic critical to the practice of nursing and nursing education is covered, including:

  • Prevention of Genetic Disease
  • Genetic Testing and Treatment
  • Genetic Counseling
  • Maternal-Child Nursing
  • Psychiatric/Mental Health Nursing
  • Community/Public Health Nursing
  • Trends, Policies, and Social and Ethical Issues

Each chapter examines how genetic information influences treatment and management and is intended to further the development of a nurse's "genetic eye" in the daily care of patients.

Book Description: Springer Publishing Co Inc, United States, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 249 x 175 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. It is no longer possible to practice as a nurse or be a nursing student without encountering some basic genetics. Genetic factors can cause disease or affect an individual s susceptibility and resistance to disease and even to treatment. To provide the best nursing care, it is therefore essential that practitioners and students have a basic knowledge of the science of genetics and how it affects the major areas of nursing expertise. Felissa Lashley has created this guide specifically for nurses, both those who did not have the benefit of a genetic education and students currently encountering genetics in their learning. In a quick, succinct introduction, it covers the basics of the science, from molecular concepts in biology to types of genetic disorders and the prevention, testing, and treatment of genetic disease. From there Dr. Lashley takes a look at the major nursing tracks: pharmacology, histories and physical assessments, obstetrics, pediatrics, surgical nursing, psychiatry, and public health. Each chapter examines how genetics informs treatment, management, and practice and each is intended to further the development of a nurses genetic eye in their critical, daily care of patients.
