Pharmacist education in the era of genomic medicine.
AbstractSUMMARY Pharmacists are increasingly expected to incorporate an understanding of the genomic contributions to medication management in their daily practice, and a general consensus exists that many pharmacists are not adequately prepared to effectively make use of genomic information. In November 2011, the National Human Genome Research Institute of the National Institutes of Health convened a meeting to discuss the status of genomics education for pharmacists. A variety of pharmacist organizations and other stakeholder groups attended the 2-day event and explored the current status of pharmacist genomic education, barriers and facilitators to enhanced education, and important next steps to ensure that pharmacists are prepared for the coming decades. This report summarizes the background, content, and outcomes from this meeting.
