Design nursing care strategies which incorporate genetic and genomic risk factors.

Scenario

You and your classmates have completed a clinical rotation through a facility that cares for individuals diagnosed with Turner Syndrome. After this rotation, the instructor asks you to submit a care plan describing how you, other nurses, and other disciplines worked to address the needs of a newly admitted client to this facility.

Instructions

Include the following in your care plan.

  • Provide details about the expected genetic and genomic assessment findings to include a discussion of the diagnostic testing process, including the timing of testing.
  • Describe the ethical considerations for genetic testing while pointing out potential ethical dilemmas of care for this population.
  • Reiterate pertinent ethical, theoretical foundations you would use to develop your plan of care.
  • Generate a care plan that includes both intraprofessional and interprofessional strategies to meet the needs of this client population.
