Workshop: Applying Pharmacogenomics (PGx) to Clinical Practice

Summary: There has been significant growth in the use of pharmacogenomics (PGx) testing applied to the prescribing of psychiatric medications. Patients and providers may be unfamiliar with PGx tests, including resources available to aid in interpretation, as well as how to effectively communicate with patients and other providers about the reasons to (or not to test) and interpretation of the results. With the event of direct to consumer testing options, providers may also be uncertain of what to do when presented with a testing result, including understanding the evidence behind the results included. Furthermore, providers may not be comfortable counseling patients on PGx results due to their lack of direct experience with the tests. Therefore, this program will be geared toward the novice learner with intent to build and enhance pharmacists’ understanding of the current state of evidence for incorporating pharmacogenomics into patient care plans.
