File Name: genetics and genomics in nursing and healthcare beery .zip
The Human Genome Project is one of the most significant, health-related advances of modern times. Genetic research has already provided significant interventions for patients diagnosed with cancer and those receiving prenatal care. It has also enhanced the pharmacological interventions available today. Genetic testing is widely available and is now being marketed directly to consumers. In light of these discoveries nursing leaders have been calling for genetics to be incorporated into nursing education and practice. Yet few nurses are adequately prepared to teach other nurses how to do this. This article discusses the history of genetics in nursing and the need to integrate genetic concepts and practices into the nursing curriculum.
Build the foundation you need to understand the science of genetics and its role in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and disorders. Confidently tackle the basics of genetic inheritance, the influence of somatic and germline mutations, the multifactorial relationship of gene-environment interactions, and the foundation of ethical behaviour.

Increasing capacity and capability in genomics is necessary to support the improved health outcomes promised by genomic medicine. The issue of workforce skilling recognises that many types of healthcare professionals will need varying degrees of genomic literacy as the implementation of genomic medicine proceeds. There is also an awareness that there is great potential to share training and education material to avoid duplication of effort. With this in mind a number of entities have made their training material freely available for others to use and adapt.
The potential of genomic medicine in improving the quality of healthcare both at population and individual-level is well-recognized globally. However, successful adoption of genetic and genomic evidence into clinical practice depends on training the healthcare workforce and clinical researchers in genomic medicine. Due to limited expertise in the medical genetics and genomics field, widespread uptake largely depends on task-shifting for the implementation of genomic medicine implementation to key healthcare professionals such as nurses. Their knowledge would be developed through courses aimed at professional development. Globally, trainers, and training initiatives in genomic medicine are in early stages of development, but resource limited settings such as the African continent face additional logistical and institutional challenges.
Genetics and genomics are life-span issues with potential implications for individuals, from pre-conception through death.
