Personalized Medicine

The goal of this program is to provide clinicians with education on genetics, genomics and pharmacogenomics to incorporate into clinical practice, ultimately improving the delivery of healthcare.

Learning Objectives and Target Audience

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize the utility of genomics based technology, and differentiate between targeted testing and broader approaches that incorporate new genomic testing methods.
  • Recognize NorthShore’s research findings and goals in personalized medicine, and identify what services are currently available to patients.
  • Identify inheritance patterns of genetic disorders and approaches to assessing genetic risk utilizing genomics.
  • Describe the application of genomics related technology to clinical oncology, and the targeted therapies used in treatment.
  • Define pharmacogenomics and associated terms, and identify gene/drug pairs with strong evidence related to pharmacogenomics.
  • Describe how normal and disease-associated variation is measured, and how the measurements are applied in an individual or family context.

This activity is intended for physicians, advanced practice providers, pharmacists, nurses and other clinicians interested in genomics and personalized medicine.
