Bridging Competency Gaps in Practice

Hosted by the Pharmacogenomics SIG

Although pharmacist competencies in genomics were recently updated to reflect the contemporary roles pharmacists play as leaders in PGx. there may still be gaps between competencies taught in PGx education and their real-world utilization and application. This webinar seeks to address such gaps by engaging PGx practitioners from diverse practice settings to provide an overview of how PGx is utilized in their settings, address any competency gaps observed in pharmacy graduates, and provide approaches (educational and experiential) that can be used to mitigate these gaps. The webinar will conclude with a Q&A session with the various speakers to help educators understand how to streamline teaching of PGx competencies to ensure our pharmacy graduates are practice ready.
