An essential manual for the future of genetic counseling Genetic counselors possess the important set of skills necessary to face the unique challenges encountered within the laboratory. As the primary liaisons between genetic technologies and patient-facing clinicians, lab counselors must have equal competency in genetic testing protocols, interpretation, and communication of clinical recommendations. Practical Genetic Counseling for the Laboratory is the first book to codify the theory and practice of laboratory genetic counseling in an accessible and comprehensive format. With contributions from laboratorians, geneticists, and genetic counselors from more than 30 institutions, it offers a manual of standards and practices that will benefit students and counselors at any career stage. Topical coverage includes: * Interpretation of genetic tests, including those specific to biochemical genetics, cytogenetics, molecular genetics, and prenatal screening * Practical guidelines for test utilization, test development, and laboratory case management * Elements for education and training in the laboratory * Counseling skills, including the consideration of ethical dilemmas, nonclinical considerations, including sales and publishing For students in this important sector of the industry or for counselors already working in it, Practical Genetic Counseling for the Laboratory offers readers a standardized approach to a dynamic subject matter that will help shape the field's future.
