9780826102225: Essentials of Clinical Genetics in Nursing Practice

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.
