Beyond the Helix: Ethical, Legal, and Social Implications in Genomics

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Objective: To review ethical, legal, and social implications of genomics, a ground-breaking science that when applied improves cancer care outcomes. Data Sources: PubMed, Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health (CINAHL), Cochrane Library, consensus statements, and professional guidelines. Conclusion: Ethical, legal, and social domains of genomics are not fully delineated. Areas needing further discussion and policies include return of findings, informed consent, electronic health records, and data resources and sharing. Implications for Nursing Practice: All nurses need a basic understanding of the ethical, legal, and social implications of genomics.
