Exploring Pharmacogenomic Testing

Practice identifying whether pharmacogenomic testing is appropriate and applying results to patient management.

 

Pharmacogenomic testing can provide clinical information about how specific variants may impact therapeutic efficacy and toxicity, as well as how to select the most appropriate drug, the optimal dose, and how to identify patients at risk for more frequent adverse drug reactions. In this module, clinicians will learn about the benefits and limitations of pharmacogenomic testing, how to determine whether pharmacogenomic testing is appropriate for the patient and the application of test results to patient management.  

Learn about pharmacogenomics using the five parts of this module: overview information via an animated video; practice cases to facilitate learning-by-doing; "dig deeper" for more in-depth topics; and logistics and additional resources for more detail.

The American Medical Association is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians. The American Medical Association designates this enduring material for a maximum of 0.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. This continuing nursing education activity was approved by the Northeast Multi-State Division (NE-MSD), an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.


CME and CNE modules on the clinical applications of genetic testing

How can genetics be used in clinic with my patients? Can genetic information really improve outcomes? Genetic testing is constantly changing. How can I keep up?

Precision Medicine for Your Practice is an educational program being developed by Scripps Research Translational Institute (Scripps), the American Medical Association (AMA), and The Jackson Laboratory (JAX) to help clinicians answer these questions. In each module, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Practice applying genetic information to realistic cases
  • Assess the utility of genetic information
  • Learn about benefits and limitations of new genetic tests

This on-demand, interactive program is a series of 8 modules that are 15-30 minutes, case-based and aim to build clinical skills and impact patient care. Topics include prenatal testing, targeted therapy in oncology, genomic sequencing, neurogenomics and pharmacogenomics. Modules are each designated for continuing medical education (CME) and continuing nursing education (CE) credit.
