The medical geneticist often describes treatment options and prognosis in medical terms when speaking to families. How should the nurse advocate for these families?

▸ When the geneticist starts using medical terminology, interrupt with, "Please describe this so the family can understand."

▸ Write down what the geneticist says so the clients will have a copy.

▸ Stay with the family after the geneticist leaves to interpret.

▸ Prepare the family with a list of common medical terms used to explain the disorder.
