About

It has been well demonstrated that there is low level of awareness towards pharmacogenomics among healthcare professionals, such as pharmacists and doctors. Since pharmacogenomics has been implicated in clinical use for more than 10 years, and the number of pharmacogenomic tests have been growing rapidly in recent years, it is important to improve the awareness of the use of pharmacogenomics among healthcare professionals.
