Summary

This monograph explores current ethical challenges associated with advances in genetics technology and genomic health care from a wide cross-section of cultural, racial, religious, and technical perspectives. While these advances are at the cutting edge of understanding the causal factors of health and illness, they also demand that we acknowledge and respect the deeply complex and diverse moral and ethical concerns that can impact the decisions of individual patients and the lives of their families and communities.
The editor has helped bring genetics and genomics into nursing practice and education world-wide. Now she has assembled some three dozen experts and examplars from numerous disciplines and traditions. Unique to this volume are voices seldom encountered in the literature, voices from communities of diverse religious, racial, and ethnic backgrounds that seldom appear in our science-based discussions of genomic health care.
