Purpose: Prevention and control are integral to reducing the number of infants born with thalassemia in Thailand. Educating high school students about thalassemia is one of many strategies to reduce the prevalence of the disorder. Reviewing the literature about genetics education in high school students will aid in the development of an appropriate thalassemia education model for high school students in Thailand. The purpose of this integrated literature review is to evaluate existing genetics education programs for high school students, with the long-term goal of developing an effective and appropriate thalassemia education model for Thai high school students. Design: Qualitative, integrated literature review of a sample of 10 empirical studies of genetics education for high school students published in the English language between 1974 and 2006. Method: Using Ganong's (1987) stages of an integrative literature review, a data collection tool was developed and pilot tested, and the rules for data analysis and interpretation were established.The research articles were systematically analyzed and reported using descriptive analysis. Findings and conclusions: Studies of genetics education in high school students are limited and concentrated in Australia, Canada, India, Brazil, and the U.S. This review yielded information about basic genetics knowledge, genetics screening attitudes, the association between genetics knowledge and genetics screening, genetics education models, computer-based genetics instruction, and facilitators and teachers for genetics education in high school students. In most of the sample studies (80%), psychometric properties were not reported, suggesting a lack of measurement standards.
