Studies From Around The World Show The Positive Impact of PGx
A detailed study funded by the Russian Science Foundation details the utility of applying PGx to patient care but leaves out a critical component of integrating the science into clinical care, as many do. Ordering providers and most pharmacists have received little to no scientific or practice-based training on how to interpret PGx reports or how to apply them to decision making when prescribing. Without this knowledge, the evidence is clear that the chain breaks between the lab report in hand and the real application of the results. PGx-specific training is essential and has proven to be the link that empowers pharmacists to take the lead.
