Oncology Pharmacogenomics and the Evolving Landscape of Targeted Therapies
The gap between genetics/genomics in clinical care, and what the nursing community is equipped to provide, grows larger day by day. Current academic nursing education does not prepare nurses for their role in today’s genomic era.

About the event
The gap between genetics/genomics in clinical care, and what the nursing community is equipped to provide, grows larger day by day. Current academic nursing education does not prepare nurses for their role in today’s genomic era. Genetics/genomics didactic and clinical content are not standard in Registered Nurse preparatory programs, leaving a workforce insufficiently prepared to help patients. Previous research has revealed that many nurses have minimal training in genetics and genomics. Advances in genetics and genomics have necessitated initiatives in healthcare to assist nurses in improving their understanding and applying this new knowledge in practice. Only with this understanding can the translation of such knowledge ultimately benefit patients, families, and communities.
