Overview

Discover how personalized medicine can be used in treatment decisions

Personalized medicine and pharmacogenetics both promise exciting new developments in healthcare. On this course you will explore their potential, taking a close look at the human genome, genome and exome sequencing, pharamcogenetics tests, a review of current best evidence and the use of personalized medicine in cancer therapy. Finally you will apply what you’ve learned to prescribing fluoropyrimidines (FU), enabling you to test your knowledge so you feel confident about applying it in your own discipline.

This course has been specially created for qualified clinicians (general practitioners, oncologists, general physicians, pharmacists, nurse practitioners, clinical scientists) and scientists (biologists and bioinformaticians) with a role in prescribing medicines or managing patients undergoing treatments.
