Abstract

As the genetic basis of many human illnesses becomes known, the provision of genetic counseling to individuals and family has gained importance. Patients concerned about genetic conditions within their family require comprehensive services that address the medical and emotional aspects of disease. The use of these types of genetic services and testing can raise ethical and social concerns. Key components of the genetic counseling process and the complex issues that surround genetic information are discussed.
