Therefore, it is important that those who were diagnosed with genetic conditions need to be supported and encouraged to communicate their conditions to their family. The objective of the study is to summarize and examine the effects of complex interventions to increase the communication of genetic conditions to their family members. In searching for relevant studies, various bibliographic databases and Cochrane Library were used. Hand search and additional electronic searches were conducted from 1 January 2000 to 5 March 2017. Data extraction was based on the PRISMA recommendation. Included studies were critically appraised using evidence-based tools and systematically synthesized. Lastly, meta-analysis and sub-analysis were performed. The seven studies included in this review used a complex intervention to increase communication of those diagnosed with genetic conditions. The meta-analysis's overall result (ORs=1.468, 95% CI=1.173-1.837, p<0.001) was statistically significant.

Introduction: Managerial style is a function-based personality that reflects the way of administration and behavior. Further, managerial style attaches numerous activities and procedures within the organization, which are based on a set of rules that managers utilized the workforce abilities, which reveals the managing framework rather than the management procedures. However, the managerial style could influence the staff and their presence at work. This study was conducted to explore whether the managerial style influences the nurse’s absenteeism among Saudi nurses working in northern region hospitals in Saudi Arabia. Methods: A descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted in 10 government hospitals in Saudi Arabia. We enrolled 420 nurses from these 10 hospitals and assessed the influence of different managerial styles on their absenteeism. We used descriptive statistics to calculate the frequencies and proportions. Data were analyzed using Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS). Results: The study findings revealed nurse's dissatisfaction and a strong feeling of administration shortcomings. Significant differences were found among all the types of organized groups in managerial styles (line of authority, work climate, leadership, communication, employment, decision making, and innovation) with a p-value of <0.05. However, the study results showed that the managerial style supervision did not influence the nurse's absenteeism. Additionally, the findings demonstrated that the management does not describe the job duties and responsibilities explicitly do not involve the employee in making decisions. Conclusion: The study findings revealed that an organizational structure needs to be created where lines of authority are defined clearly, employees are involved in the decision-making process, and employees are authorized to make choices about their job duties in a way that is best suitable to them.
