The September issue of Cancer Nursing Practice http://www.nursing-standard.co.uk/cancernursing/ has genetics on the front cover. Yipee!
Here at Glamorgan we are all extremely pleased; this month, Cancer Nursing Practice and 6 other journals from the RCN publishing group:
Learning Disability Practice
Mental Health Practice
Nursing Older People
Primary Health Care
all have articles by Maggie Kirk, myself and a specialist nurse from each field, that have been written to raise awareness about how genetics fits into nursing practice.
We also want to find out what nurses really think about the subject and so have included a short questionnaire alongside each piece. If you’re a nurse working in the UK and have access to a computer, you can also find the questionnaire at www.geneticseducation.nhs.uk/questionnaire
Thanks to Karen Birmingham and all the other editorial staff at RCN for their hard working in getting all seven pieces published simultaneously.
