Pharmacogenomics: Exploring genetic variation in drug metabolism and utilization


Have you seen patients who were prescribed the same medication and had vastly different responses? It might be their genetics! In this course, Dr Margaret Fitzgerald explains the latest information on how genetic differences can influence the response to drugs to keep you at the forefront of practice and your patients safe!

At the conclusion of the course, you will be able to:

  • Define pharmacogenomics, pharmacogenetics, pharmacokinetics, and pharmacodynamics. 

  • Describe the clinical implications of genetic variations in drug metabolism and how these factors influence prescribing. 

  • Identify select at-risk populations for genetically influenced adverse drug reactions.
