Delivers complex information in an easy-to-read, step-by-step format The genomic era encompasses the entire spectrum of DNA -- all of the genes, and the interaction and inter-relationship of genes (genome) to the environment. Rapidly changing research has led to numerous advances in genetic testing, diagnosis, and treatments, and it is essential that APRNs be able to integrate genetic risk assessment into clinical care. This quick reference delivers complex information in an easy-to-read, step-by-step format with bitesize info boxes and bulleted information to provide the tools necessary to understand genetics/genomics and identify "red flags" that can appear in patient assessments. In an age of personalized and precision medicine, genetic risk assessment has never been more important. Genetics and Genomics in Nursing begins with an overview of genetics and the science behind inheritance. Chapters then break down the processes that make up risk assessment, and walk the reader through data collection and review, identification and calculation of risk, and patient communication. Finally, the last section of this text discusses special populations and key facts nurses need to know about their risk assessment. Key Features: Provides a clear introduction to a complex topic Describes important elements of the genomic risk assessment process for use in clinical settings when evaluating patients Illustrates how to develop a three-generation pedigree Applies commonly-used standardized pedigree symbols and familial patterns to aid in risk interpretation Discusses the challenges and limitations of pedigree interpretation Explains common concepts and includes helpful genomic resources Incorporates genomic risk assessment into patient evaluation

Takes the fear out of learning about genetics and genomics for the nursing professional With its focus on the basics of genetics and genomics in nursing practice, this Fast Facts resource is the first to fill the content gap in this important area. Its streamlined format—featuring bulleted, step-by-step information and brief paragraphs—disseminates key content that is presented simply and understandably. The book examines how genetics impacts families and the care they need, and provides nurses with the genomic knowledge to advocate for personalized patient and family care, and to improve patient outcomes. Following a discussion of the science and foundations of genetics and genomics, this resource addresses their impact on patient care and application in nursing practice. It covers the relationship of genetics and genomics to health, prevention, screening, diagnostics, prognostics, and selection and monitoring of treatment. Case studies demonstrate how genomic concepts are applied in practice, and underscore their implications for patients with cancer, cardiovascular disease, psychiatric disorders, and autoimmune deficiencies. End of chapter questions are designed to assess knowledge. Also included are online resources that examine the latest genetic/genomic advancements and their impact on nursing. Key Features: Simplifies difficult concepts for ease of understanding Explains the difference between genetic testing and genetic screening Discusses ethical, legal, and social concerns specific to genetics and genomics Describes the application of genetics and genomics in healthcare Explains how knowledge of genetics and genomics can guide healthcare decisions Helps nurse educators teach genomic content Educates nurses in using genetic advances to improve patient outcomes

Essentials of Medical Genetics for Health Professionals is a concise, accessible introduction to medical genetics for all health professions students. Even with limited exposure to genetics, students can use the accelerated approach in this text to attain a base foundation of genetics knowledge. This book begins with a review of chromosomes, DNA, RNA, protein synthesis, and inheritance patterns and continues with a clinical focus based on understanding different disease processes. A variety of genetic diseases are explored, including what is known about the genetics involved, the signs and symptoms of the disease, and the treatment options available. Accompanying tables and images aid comprehension. This book also covers diagnostic techniques and an overview of embryonic development and teratogens. The roles of genetic counseling and screening, as well as the ethical and legal issues related to genetic screening and genetic testing are also discussed. Complete with stated objectives, definition of key terms, references, chapter summaries and end of chapter review questions with answers, each chapter is organized for optimal learning. Essentials of Medical Genetics for Health Professionals will not only have application in the classroom setting for health professions or medical students, but practicing clinicians such as physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and physicians who want to learn more or revisit genetics will also find this book a valuable, useful resource. Instructor Resources include PowerPoint Slides, a TestBank, and an Image Bank.
