Pharmacogenetics and Your Clinical Practice

Genomics is a central science for all advanced practice nurses due to the fact that many diseases and conditions have a genetic or genomic component. In the imminent future, all health care will increasingly include genetic and genomic information including pathways of prevention, screening, diagnostics, pharmacology, selection of treatment, and monitoring of treatment effectiveness. This webinar will examine the advances in pharmacogenomics, which is the study of genetic/genomic variation and how these variation influence drug therapy.
