A Pharmacogenomics Patient Case Repository for Pharmacy Educators

December 10, 2021
1:00 p.m.–2:00 p.m. ET

Hosted by the Pharmacogenomics SIG

As schools/colleges of pharmacy develop their pharmacogenomics (PGx) curriculum, pharmacy educators may need to provide PGx cases to illustrate its clinical application to the learners. The PGx SIG formed a PGx Case Committee, comprising of educators from basic sciences and pharmacy practice, who surveyed SIG members and identified a need to create a central repository of PGx patient cases. The Case Committee created a PGx patient case repository offering different levels of PGx complexity across several therapeutic areas with actionable PGx concepts while integrating the PPCP process. The innovation of this project is the involvement of students in building and maintaining the repository.

This webinar will present an overview of the inception and development of this PGx case repository, how pharmacy educators can use it and contribute sharing their own cases to expand this repository. The webinar will conclude with a Q&A session with the Case Committee. 


  1. Describe the survey and needs analysis process used for the case committee project.
  2. Identify the various types of cases (introductory, intermediate, and advanced) available in the repository and the differences between them.
  3. Explain the rationale for the choice of the different therapeutic areas used for creating cases in the current repository.
  4. List the steps needed to submit a case to contribute to the repository.
