TO THE POINT: Award winning book on clinical genetics by Rutgers College of Nursing Dean Felissa R. Lashley has been released in the third edition with updated and new information

NEWARK, N.J. The award winning book, "Clinical Genetics in Nursing Practice," authored by Felissa R. Lashley, Rutgers College of Nursing dean and professor, has been issued in a third edition with new and updated information about genetics pertinent to nursing practice.

The third edition, published by Springer Publishing Co., is a comprehensive overview of genetics and provides nurses and other health care professionals with information on how to assess, diagnose, manage and educate individuals with genetic conditions and their families. In addition to a summary of basic human genetics, proteinomics, and discussion of the Human Genome project, this new edition includes the latest research findings, updated information on major genetic disorders; genetic influences on common diseases, such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and emphysema; resistance and susceptibility to infectious diseases; and assessment and treatment as well as covering prenatal diagnosis, genetic screening, testing and counseling.

"The book helps nurses 'think genetically' and integrate genetic concepts and principles into their practice," said Lashley, who is also the director of the Nursing Center for Bioterrorism and Infectious Diseases Preparedness at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. "It is important to understand the implications of human genetic variation, gene environment interaction, and overt genetic diseases and how they affect patients and families in regard to disease treatment and prevention."

The first two editions received the American Journal of Nursing Book of the Year awards in 1984 (J.B. Lippincott Co.) and 1998 (Springer).

Lashley is the first nurse to be certified as a PhD medical geneticist by the American Board of Medical Genetics and is a
