Editors: Julie A. Johnson, Vicki L. Ellingrod, Deanna L. Kroetz, Grace M. Kuo

Pharmacists and health care practitioners, educators, and trainees providing patient care services are affected by the ever-advancing science of pharmacogenomics. In re­sponse, ACCP’s third edition of Pharmacogenomics: Applications to Patient Care, developed by expert clinicians and researchers in the field, provides a state-of-the-art, clinically germane resource that distills the overwhelming body of scientific and clinical evidence and suggests practical actions for the translation and clinical ap­plication of pharmacogenetics to everyday practice.

The book covers a spectrum of topics, from the evolution of pharmacogenomics to the clinical application of pharmaco­genetics in the clinical setting, with particular focus on select classes of agents and diseases/conditions; competencies for health care professionals; pharmacogenomics research; and regulatory, ethical, and economic issues, among others. Edited by Julie A. Johnson, Vicki L. Ellingrod, Deanna L. Kroetz, and Grace M. Kuo, the third edition of Pharmacogenomics: Applications to Patient Care provides up-to-date contributions from the groundbreaking efforts of pharmacogenomics research.
