Each of the cells in the body contains DNA; the basic units of inheritance that is acquired from parental generations and are key determinants to major physical and health phenotypic. DNA is orchestrated like a twisted ladder, with data incorporated in a planned manner. Segments of the DNA containing hereditary  data, likely to be translated into proteins are known as Genes.The total genetic component of an organism is called its Genome. Nurses should have the responsibility to undertake the task of evaluating the common genetic profile of the patients by evaluating them in the light of that of their parents’ which in todays time is a crucial factor in providing individualized therapy to the patients.

Violence related mental health difficulties are poorly recognised. Women are reluctant to disclose a history of violent discrimination unless physicians ask about it directly. Women in 'mid-life aged 45-60 years, may be juggling caring commitments for children and older relatives as well as doing paid work and facing physical health problems. At the same time, mid-life women may find themselves in financial difficulty as a result of lifelong lower pay, part-time working, family caring, widowhood or divorce.
