Target Audience: This course is designed for pharmacists, nurses, physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, genetic counselors and any other members of the patient care team.

Pharmacogenomics (PGx), the study of how one’s genes may affect an individual’s response to medication, has reached the translational stage for various specialties in medicine. This conference provides the background, resources and practical application examples to implement pharmacogenomics and make a difference in patients' lives.

Learning Objectives - Upon conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:

  • Illustrate how guidelines can be used by clinicians to make specific prescribing decisions for patient care when genetic information is available
  • Identify key principles for implementation of pharmacogenomics into clinical practice
  • Outline PGx recommendations based on available evidence in various disease states including cardiac disease, cancer, psychiatry, pain and more.
  • Describe an example of preemptive testing for inpatients and outpatients
  • Identify PGx tests available for use in clinical practice
