What is PharmGenEd™?
"Pharmacogenomics Education Program: Bridging the Gap between Science and Practice" (PharmGenEd™) is an evidence-based pharmacogenomics education program designed for pharmacists and physicians, pharmacy and medical students, and other healthcare professionals. This program is supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC, Grant Number IU38GD000070). The program team at UCSD Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences is collaborating with national pharmacy, medical, and healthcare organizations to deliver PharmGenEd™ materials to more than 100,000 pharmacists, physicians, and healthcare professionals.
The objective of PharmGenEd™ is to increase awareness about current knowledge of the validity and utility of pharmacogenomic tests and the potential implications of their therapeutic use. The curriculum related to pharmacogenomics concepts and clinical applications will be disseminated via:
- Web-based or live CPE/CME presentations
- Evidence-based pubcasts and videocasts
- A shared curriculum platform to "Train-the-Trainer"
