A Valuable Insight Impact of Pharmacist in Pharmacogenomics

  title={A Valuable Insight Impact of Pharmacist in Pharmacogenomics},
  author={Sana Hasmi and Gamal Osman Elhassan and Shamshir Khan and Mohammad Afzal Rashid.},
DOI: 10.21276/sajp.2017.6.12.8 Abstract: Pharmacogenomics is the study of genetic variations that influence individual response to drugs. Knowing whether a patient carries any of these genetic variations can help prescribers individualize drug therapy, decrease the chance for adverse drug events and increase the effectiveness of drugs. Pharmacist must be aware with the new technologies so as to take advantage of these new opportunities for the benefit of patients. Pharmacist must further… Expand


Integrating pharmacogenomics into pharmacy practice via medication therapy management
The pharmacy profession must define a process for the application of pharmacogenomic data into pharmacy clinical practice that is aligned with MTM service delivery, develop a viable business model for these practices, and encourage and direct the development of an effective infrastructure for this process.
