Prescribing psychiatric medication requires a lot of trial and error because each person may respond to medication differently. Pharmacogenetics provides an approach to tailoring psychiatric drug treatments based on an individual’s genetic profile and unique drug response. In this webinar, Jason Stein and Chad Bousman will discuss genomic profiling for predicting drug responses and the clinical utility of pharmacogenetic testing for psychiatric disorders.
Topics to be covered
- Identifying genetic variations influencing drug responses in bipolar disorder
- Pharmacogenetic-guided prescribing for depression and schizophrenia
Friday, December 16th, 2022 | 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM Eastern Time
This webinar will be available to view live and on demand.
