Concurrent Session 1A: Clinical Implementation of Pharmacogenomics Part 1 CME (AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM) 1.5; ACPE 1.5; Attendance CEU 1.5

Wednesday, September 12
10:15 AM - 11:45 AM
Location: Mayo Civic Center Rooms 102-103

The clinical implementation of pharmacogenomics and its use in routine clinical care is complex, touching a spectrum of clinical care providers.  In this session, we will review the growing body of evidence in support of the clinical utility of pharmacogenomics, and review real-world examples of the critical contribution of pharmacists to pharmacogenomic implementation as well as the role of the primary care provider as educator and the key to translating this aspect of clinical genomics into improved healthcare for the patient.
