Disclaimer When taking a family genetic history on an actual client, it is essential that the information is accurate. Please inform the person you are interviewing that they do NOT need to disclose information that they wish to keep confidential. If the adult participant decides not to share information, please write, “Does not want to disclose.” Directions 1. Refer to the examples in Chapter 10 of your textbook discusses development of a genogram. 2. Download the NR305_Family_Genetic_History_Form from Doc Sharing. You will document the adult participant’s family genetic history using this MS Word document. 3. Complete the family genetic history using the information that the adult participant is willing to share with you. The focus of this course is on the normal “healthy” individual so your paper does not need to contain much medical/nursing detail. Refer to your textbook or the internet to learn what impact the family’s health history may have on the adult participant’s personal state of wellness both now and in the future. This paper does not require APA formatting, but you are expected to write clearly and use proper grammar and spelling. Developing a pictorial genogram using symbols to identify certain relationships, e.g., divorced, sibling, deceased, etc., may provide more insight, however, drawing may be difficult to accomplish with MS Word, therefore you are not expected to use symbols, lines or other drawing elements. Instead, describe the relationships among the various people in the adult participant’s family’s genetic history. Remember, the goal is not to learn how to draw with Word, but to gather information about the family and recognize its significance to the adult participant and that person’s health. 4. Save the completed form by clicking on “Save as” and add your last name to the file name, e.g., “NR305_Family_Genetic_History_Form_Smith” 5.
