Biological Research For Nursing - Integrating Biobehavioral Research into Health Care

Genetic and genomic discoveries impact all areas of healthcare practice, from providing insight into new treatments to supporting disease-prevention strategies to guiding development of personalized health interventions. Nursing research has made, and will continue to make, significant contributions to the growing body of evidence that informs our understanding of the role of genes and genomics in health and illness. From bench to bedside to population health, nursing research is at the forefront of translating basic science into clinical and community applications.

The goal of this special issue is to disseminate cutting-edge findings of genetic and genomic research that have the potential to impact nursing practice and to improve health outcomes across the spectrum of healthcare practice. Submission of basic, clinical, and population genetic and/or genomics research relevant to nursing practice is encouraged. Deadline to submit a manuscript is July 21, 2017. Click here for the complete announcement or you can contact the guest editors below.
