Summary

Genetics is increasingly important in health care provision, but its relevance on a day-to-day basis is often poorly understood. Genetics for Healthcare Professionals introduces the general principles of genetics and links these to real world examples, to allow nurses, midwives, genetic counselors and doctors to apply this knowledge in their routine clinical practice.

The book takes an holistic family-oriented approach, from preconception to adulthood, and addresses the misconception that clinical genetics is only of relevance to those who are reproducing.

Genetics for Healthcare Professionals is an essential textbook of genetics for nurses, midwives, genetic counselors and doctors. An ideal coursebook for students in the healthcare professions, it is also written for qualified staff seeking an update on current issues and how to apply them in practice.
