Description

Webinar: Role of Pharmacogenetics Testing in Psychiatry

Location: Online Via PsychU.org

Description: Drs. Joseph Goldberg, MD, and Lisa Goldstone, PharmD, MS will discuss benefits and limitations of pharmacogenetics testing on current psychiatric practice based on recent evidence from clinical trials as well as their own clinical experience. Although identification of genetic factors affecting drug safety and efficacy may be beneficial for some patients, pharmacogenetic testing is not currently recommended for routine clinical use. By understanding the scope of information that current pharmacogenetics testing can provide in psychiatry, healthcare providers can identify ways that this testing can be informative for patients.
