Genomics plays a role in nine of the 10 leading causes of death in the United States, such as cancer and heart disease. Today, the study of genomics has become the center of excitement for new health care and disease prevention innovations. As new developments in genomics continue to occur at a rapid pace, it is important for nurses to know that “old school” genetics principles still apply, too! Knowing a patient’s family history and genomic information and understanding how to integrate both old and new genomics principles into daily practice are critical for the best risk assessment for common diseases.

Hospital readmissions have been in the spotlight for many reasons.

Learn what is occurring at the national and local levels to address reducing patient readmissions.
