Genetics is vitally important in the health sciences, but its relevance on a day-to-day basis is often poorly understood. Genetics for the Health Sciences 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. Based on their extensive experience of clinical work, the authors emphasize the practical issues related to the healthcare of individuals and families. The book takes an holistic approach, from preconception to adulthood, and addresses the false notion that clinical genetics is of relevance only to those who are planning a family. As well as discussing the basic principles, Genetics for the Health Sciences also describes the latest technologies and shows how these can be applied to clinical practice. Genetics for the Health Sciences is an essential text which helps all those in clinical healthcare understand the genetics they need in their professional roles. It is also an ideal coursebook for students in the healthcare professions seeking an understanding of core genetic principles and how these are applied in practice. Printed Pages: 238.
