Genetic counseling/ Genetic family history assessment
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY AS THESE ARE TWO SEPARATE ASSIGNMENT IN ONE. ONE IS A DISCUSSION AND THE OTHER ONE IS A DETAILED PAPER IT NEEDS TO BE DONE IN TWO SEPARATE DOCUMENTS, DO NOT COMBINE
First paper is a discussion post
This discussion asks you look at the role of the family health nurse in a genetic counseling scenario. Imagine that you are a family health nurse, and today in your office you will be seeing a married couple who are both carriers for a genetic disorder (for example, sickle cell, cystic fibrosis, or Huntington’s disease). This couple would like to have children, but since they are both carriers for a genetic disorder, they are seeking your advice on what they should do before they attempt to start a family.
