    Pharmacogenomics Databases: What’s Available and How to Navigate Them | Precision Health and PGX

    Episode Summary:In recognition of National DNA Day, April 25, 2024, Dr. Mary Weissman, Miss Courtney Harmon, and Dr. Becky Winslow discuss clinical pharmacogenomics resources, what pharmacogenomics information they provide, and how to navigate and utilize the pharmacogenomics information to answer a prescriber’s clinical question about pharmacogenomics' relationship to an adverse drug event.  Listeners interested in learning a step-wise approach to using the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA's) Table of Pharmacogenetics Associations and the FDA Table of Pharmacogenomic Biomarkers in Drug Labeling, the Clinical Pharmacogenetics Implementation Consortium's (CPIC's) database, and the Pharmacogenomics Knowledgebase (PharmGKB) to demystify pharmacogenomics' role in adverse drug events will not want to miss this Precision Health and PGx Podcast episode. Biographies:Before founding inGENEious RX Incorporated, a boutique pharmacogenomics consulting firm, Dr. Winslow directed pharmacy business operations and clinical pharmacy programs in retail, hospital, long-term care, and public health pharmacies for Walmart Stores, Community Health Systems, Neil Medical Group, and the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services. Since founding inGENEious RX over ten years ago, Dr. Winslow has worked with numerous distinguished vendors in the pharmacogenomics industry to reduce barriers holding pharmacogenomics back from becoming a standard of care including Translational Software, Admera Health, Genemarkers, National Association of Chain Drug Stores, Acutis Diagnostics, Kentucky Teachers’ Retirement System, and GenXys. A sought-after pharmacogenomics subject matter expert, Dr. Winslow, is an authority in pharmacogenomics access and reimbursement and specializes in business strategy consulting for pharmacogenomics stakeholders.  Dr. Mary Weissman is a pharmacogenomics science, clinical utility and reimbursement expert and inGENEious RX Incorporated team member.  After earning her PharmD from the Arnold and Marie Schwartz College of Pharmacy, Dr. Weissman completed a two-year pharmacogenomics fellowship with a clinical diagnostic lab. Upon completing her academic training in pharmacology and pharmacogenomics, Dr. Weissman embarked on a journey to apply her expertise in clinical diagnostic laboratories and has held several key scientific and clinical roles in pharmacogenomics laboratories. Through informative presentations, training sessions, papers, and webinars, she has helped clarify pharmacogenomics' complexities and highlight its potential to revolutionize medication management strategies for pharmacogenomics' stakeholders.Miss Courtney Harmon is graduating from Manchester University's Pharmacy and Pharmacogenomics programs in 2024.  She serves as a P4 liaison for Manchester University's chapter of Industry Pharmacists Organization (IPhO) and she is interested in pursuing a career in industry pharmacy.

Updated and Holistic in Approach

Benhaz and Becky bring pharmacogenomics from excited dreams to reality. They combine pharmacy and physician medicine with the financial and technological reality of pharmacogenomics. It’s refreshing to hear and listen to experts give the reality and current direction of precision medicine without trying to over hype it.

Amazing

Behnaz continues to raise the bar by bringing top clinical pharmacists who shed further knowledge on the world of PGx and how pharmacists are best equipped to use this is a tool to show our value in the health system. The quality and content of her guests keeps me engaged and spurs new business ideas for my work with seniors, patient advocacy and deprescribing ! Keep up the awesome work Behnaz !

General evaluations

The webinars were really nice and touch the professionals as pharmacist issues nowadays. I would like to highlight point and hope you guys bring someone who can or he may can help with issue of pharmacy education and how schools now focus the generarte pharmacist as dispenser or clinical pharmacist ( with very limited knowledge & clinically ). I’m old pharmacy school system and pharmacy has a lot of area where the pharmacist must lead those such as function medicine, herb medicine, food medicine, Food drug interaction, genetic Side effects , medicinal chemistry of drugs, natural products, quality control pharmaceutical products- and so on.
