Kathleen A. Calzone, Emma Tonkin

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


As genomics moves into mainstream services, this chapter considers the role of the nurse in providing care that is informed by genomic tests and information. Most nurses and nurse educators have limited knowledge, skills, and behaviors in genomics which is discussed before the authors set out a number of areas that need to be taken into account when planning, delivering, or promoting genomics education and training. A range of resources and tools are offered to support the integration of genomics across nursing.
