Genomics Analysis

RNs are tasked with comprehending how an individual’s genetic makeup may predispose them to certain diseases or change the way a particular drug acts differently in one client than it does in most others. Technological advances in the areas of science and medicine allow the healthcare team to identify some risk factors that influence health. An understanding of how genomics (the study of the impact of genetics on health) influences early detection of disease processes can assist the nurse in encouraging early detection as a way to promote health.
