Highly valued across the world by genetic counsellors, medical geneticists and other health care professionals, Harper's Practical Genetic Counselling has established itself over previous editions as the essential guide to counselling those at risk from inherited disorders. Fully revised by its new author Angus Clarke, and with additional input from colleagues, this eighth edition provides indispensable and up-to-date guidance, helping readers to navigate the profusion of new information in this area and the associated psychosocial and ethical considerations and concerns. Maintaining the trusted framework of earlier editions, the update presents the latest information on the use and interpretation of genetic test results, including new genome-based investigations and their application in the genetic counselling process.

This book will help both the student and the practitioner, as genetic and genomic investigations become progressively more relevant to all health care professionals with the mainstreaming of genetics across the full range of medical practice. Key features:Provides the very latest information in a tried and tested format for speedy access in the busy consulting room or clinic

Includes new and expanded chapters on laboratory genetic investigation, gene-based `rational' approaches to treatment, population genetic screening and the use of cell-free DNA in prenatal genetic testing, reflecting the rapid development of knowledge in these areas
Delivers clear and authoritative advice, applicable to everyday clinical practice

The eighth edition of this best-selling text will continue to be an essential source of reference for trainee and practitioner genetic counsellors and medical geneticists, for clinicians and nurses working in mainstream specialties who increasingly are dealing with the genetic aspects of disease, and for practitioners working in settings where referral to a genetics specialist is not readily available. It also provides invaluable background for other health care professionals, counsellors, social scientists, ethicists and genetics laboratory staff.
