New roles for nurses who care for people with genetic conditions.
Due to the advances in DNA technology and major developments in nursing practice in clinical genetics, including the creation of new roles for nurses who care for people with genetic conditions. Application of genetic information and testing is moving genetics into the mainstream of health care. Therefore, it is expected that nurses in all areas of practice should become involved in the provision of information about genetic testing and assisting individuals and families in decision making and adjustment to new genetic information (Jenkins & Calzone, 2007).
