Pharmacogenomics in Clinical Practice: A Webinar Series
Pharmacogenomic testing (PGT) can optimize and individualize medication therapy to each patient, removing the one-size-fits-all approach of current practice. The ability to predict patient responses to medications via genetic testing has the potential to decrease adverse side effects, reducing costs to both the patient and health care system. Occurrence of fewer side effects improves compliance, which leads to improved patient outcomes and overall provider and patient satisfaction.
For those that cannot attend live, this program will be recorded and sent to all registrants. The recording will be available for 30 days following the lecture.
Pharmacogenomic testing can help make a difference for patients and improve health outcomes. This conference will explore pharmacogenomics, examining current use and barriers, evidence-based guidelines, resources and more.
