Human Genetics in Nursing
Suresh K. Sharma
This book offers the basics of genetics and genetic health care for the practice of every nurse and specialist. This is an opportunity for nurses to practice health promotion tailored to highly specific and uniquely personal predispositions, in other words, individualized health care. Nurses can offer care that protects patients and families from the risks associated with genetic information, including addressing family issues. Nurses are also needed to refer to patients to genetic specialists and assist patients in making choices as a genetic health care.
