- March 2013: Genomics in Nursing Special Issue and Webinars
Nurses bring an important perspective to the application of genomics in patient care. A Genomics in Nursing Special Issue has been published in the Journal of Nursing Scholarship (2013) regarding genomics of common health conditions with relevance for nursing practice. The issue consists of an editorial and 11 articles, all intended to provide a platform for preparing both the practicing and academic communities for the translation of genomics into practice. The articles provide an overview of: current and emerging genomic science and technology; ethical, legal, social, and nursing research issues associated with the translation of genomics into healthcare; the state of the evidence about genomic variation and clinical implications for common diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, metabolic syndrome, and cancer; content about both pediatric and adult conditions; and implications for international care.
A video about this special issue is available at www.genome.gov/27552312/journal-of-nursing-scholarship-genomic-nursing-webinar-series/. For open access to all articles visit The Journal of Nursing Scholarship Series in Genomic Nursing
