Overview

Essentials Of Medical Genetics For Health Professionals / Edition 1

Essentials of Medical Genetics for Health Professionals is a concise, accessible introduction to medical genetics for all health professions students. Even with limited exposure to genetics, students can use the accelerated approach in this text to attain a base foundation of genetics knowledge. This book begins with a review of chromosomes, DNA, RNA, protein synthesis, and inheritance patterns and continues with a clinical focus based on understanding different disease processes. A variety of genetic diseases are explored, including what is known about the genetics involved, the signs and symptoms of the disease, and the treatment options available. Accompanying tables and images aid comprehension. This book also covers diagnostic techniques and an overview of embryonic development and teratogens. The roles of genetic counseling and screening, as well as the ethical and legal issues related to genetic screening and genetic testing are also discussed.

Complete with stated objectives, definition of key terms, references, chapter summaries and end of chapter review questions with answers, each chapter is organized for optimal learning.

Essentials of Medical Genetics for Health Professionals will not only have application in the classroom setting for health professions or medical students, but practicing clinicians such as physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and physicians who want to learn more or revisit genetics will also find this book a valuable, useful resource.

Instructor Resources include PowerPoint Slides, a TestBank, and an Image Bank.
