Description of CME Course
The same medications and treatments are not universally effective for every patient. As consumer knowledge of genetics increases, more patients will be coming to you with a direct-to-consumer (DTC) genetics test in hand. What expectations will your patients have? How does Pharmacogenomics (PGx) data help us determine which medication will work better for a specific patient? This course will answer those questions by framing PGx from the perspective of the patient.
