From prevention and identification of risk status to the development and use of targeted therapies, genetics is changing the face of oncology care. ONS provides a number of resources to learn more about genetics (the study of individual genes) and genomics (the study of all genes in the human genome).
ONS has published several positions related to the special issues associated with genetics.
The Cancer Genetics Special Interest Group provides opportunities to network with other nurses interested in genetics and genomics and to contribute to the collective knowledge on this exciting and quickly changing field.
