Introduction to genetics and genomics:a revised framework for nurses

Maggie Kirk Professor of genetics education, Genomics Policy Unit, Faculty of Life Sciences and Education, University of South Wales, Pontypridd

The genetics education framework for nurses first published in 2003 has been revised to reflect advances in genomic research and technology and its implications for practice. The framework now comprises eight competency statements. Each of these competencies will be discussed in a series of articles published in subsequent issues of Nursing Standard to update nurses on this dynamic field of health care.
