Issues Raised

Each story has been reviewed to identify any particular issues it raises, and you might find that selecting a story under these sub-themes may be helpful if you are learning about, or planning a lesson on that topic area. Even if the topic is not directly about genetics, choosing a ‘genetics’ story as an example can help raise awareness about genetics.

You may be able to identify more issues – if so, we’d like to hear from you.

The sub-themes of issues rasied are:

  • Ethical issues
  • Reproductive choices
  • Communication
  • Care & management
  • Family as expert
  • Impact on family, friends or community
  • Education & awareness
  • Genetic knowledge for practice
  • Interprofessional practice
  • Termination of pregnancy
