How advances in genomics are changing patient care

How advances in genomics are changing patient care

Nursing Clinics of North America 48(4): 557-569

The completion of the Human Genome Project has led to a greater understanding of the role of genetics/genomics in the development of all common diseases, which is leading to the routine integration of genetics and genomics into all aspects of health care. This change in practice presents new challenges for health care professionals. This article provides an overview of how genetics/genomics has the potential to improve health care within many different clinical scenarios, and highlights the key issues for nurses working in a variety of settings.
