Introduction to Risk Calculation in Genetic Counseling

Introduction to Risk Calculation in Genetic Counseling Lowest new price: $46.40
Lowest used price: $46.40
List price: $56.00
Author: Ian D. Young

The process of genetic counseling involves many key components, such as taking a family genetic history, making a diagnosis, and providing communication and support to the family. Among these core processes is the mathematical calculation of the actual risk of a possible genetic disorder. For most physicians and counselors, the mathematics and statistics involved can be major challenge which is not always helped by complex computer programs or lengthy papers full of elaborate formulae. In this clear, reader-friendly guide, Ian Young addresses this problem and demonstrates how risk can be estimated for inherited disorders using a basic knowledge of the laws of probability and their application to clinical problems. The text employs a wealth of clearly explained examples and key points in order to guide the reader to an accurate assessment of the risk of genetic disease. It primarily will appeal to genetic counselors, geneticists, and all those involved in providing medical genetic services. In this new edition, Dr. Young has pruned redundancies and extensively updated the concepts in each of the 10 chapters, and he has included more working examples, a popular feature of the book.

Author: Robert F. Murphy
Brand: Murphy, Robert F.

"The most powerful book of its kind I've ever read.... Extraordinary powers of observation, generalization, and depth."―Oliver Sacks, author of The Man Who Mistook His Wife For a Hat

Winner of the Columbia University Lionel Trilling Award. Robert Murphy was in the prime of his career as an anthropologist when he felt the first symptom of a malady that would ultimately take him on an odyssey stranger than any field trip to the Amazon: a tumor of the spinal cord that progressed slowly and irreversibly into quadriplegia. In this gripping account, Murphy explores society's fears, myths, and misunderstandings about disability, and the damage they inflict. He reports how paralysis―like all disabilities―assaults people's identity, social standing, and ties with others, while at the same time making the love of life burn even more fiercely.
