Website that provides a physician/health care provider with useful information about the utility of a family history in identifying disease risk and developing a personalized prevention program. Family history questionnaires to use when gathering a complete and accurate family medical history. Family history readings to assist providers in diagnosis of disease risk.
The Genetics in Primary Care Institute, hosted by the American Academy of Pediatrics (https://geneticsinprimarycare.aap.org/Pages/default.aspx), is applicable and useful for nurses and nurse practitioners in all specialties, including those who do not provide primary care. In my lectures, I share this site as a resource for nursing students and practicing nurses, as it provides excellent content on all topics relevant to genomic-focused care.
