Genetic counseling (US) or Genetic Counselling (UK) or Consiliere Genetica (RO)

About consilieregenetica

Founded in March 2012, following the National Rare Diseases Alliance meeting held in Bucharest (February 2012), it aims to help patients and professionals altogether in finding guidance, support and, last but not least, attempting a more efficient networking platform in a field which momentarily lacks a proper setting. The new concepts in modern Genetics postulate that simply “all diseases are, in fact, genetic” (in different percentages, seeing DNA&RNA coding as the intimate framework of life, including epigenetics, i.e. the influence of environmental factors upon genes, and especially gene expression). Furthermore, “rare diseases” (defined by WHO as “diseases with an incidence/occurance less than 1 in 2000 newborn) are very highly represented in populations: around 6-8% of the gereral public have such a disease. The figures are just extremely rough estimates, addressing and accessing genetic testing are still low, leading to significant underdiagnosing, lots of well-known genetic disordes remain undetected. The numbers could increase dramatically if thoroughly investigated. Genetic counselling has many functions, hence the necessity of this platform. Thank you and God bless us all!

Something else (doesn’t fit in here, but it’s very late at night):

Directioneaza 2% pentru copii

O Fapta buna: Directioneaza 2% pentru copiii cu nevoi speciale

I-am vazut la lucru, grupuri mici dar atentie sporita, jocuri si activitati antrenante, dar mai ales utile dezvoltarii lor psihice. Sunt de un mare profesionalism si-i recomand cu caldura.

Iar eu vă doresc un Paște binecuvântat!

Change of internet address

T.A. (Teaching Assistant) and PhD-student in Medical Genetics,

University of Medicine and Pharmacy “Carol Davila” Bucharest;
MSc-student in Genetic Counselling, University Babes-Bolyai, Cluj-Napoca.

Note: RSGC (the Romanian Society of Genetic Counsellors doesn’t -still- legally exist, neither the profession of genetic counsellor in Romania) therefore I’ve given up the so-called “pro” version of the website, although I think you may not notice any change.

Just be aware of the internet address change.

RSGC

I’ve been announced that “Your domain genetic-counselling.org expired.”

The NEW address for the same website will be from now on https://consilieregenetica.wordpress.com with the same content (hopefully updated more frequently with interesting news, cases, therapies, diagnosis methods and, of course, counselling.

The content will be (the same) mostly in English, although the website is Romanian.

Yours sincerely,

Stefan Traian Grozescu, M.D.

Ce face un consilier genetic?

Clujeanca Ramona Moldovan e singurul consilier genetic din ţară, la care oamenii merg să afle ce boli pot avea în funcţie moştenirea genetică. Consilierul genetic, o îmbinare între psiholog şi genetician, este o profesie de tradiţie în ţări ca Marea Britanie, Franţa, Olanda şi SUA, în timp ce în România încă nu apare în Nomenclatorul meseriilor.
