Tuesday 30 August 2016
09:00-12:00
Hilton Buenos Aires : Pacifico A, 3 hours

Organised by the FIP Special Interest Groups on Translational Research and Individualized Medicines, Pharmacokinetics and Pharmacodynamics and the FIP Hospital Pharmacy Section

Introduction

There are more than 200 different types of cancer. One in three people in developed countries will get cancer in their lifetime. Recent advances in medical genetics and human genetics have enabled a more detailed understanding of the impact of genetics in drug discovery and development. Pharmacists need to provide the best pharmaceutical care possible to individual patients by understanding current evidence and information. Pharmacists could enhance the effect of chemotherapy and quality of life by expanding their role in genomics and other -omics. 

Learning objectives

At the conclusion of this knowledge-based session, participants will be able to:

  1. Explain the important of implementing personalised anticancer strategy based on pharmacogenomics
  2. Describe the other “-omics” technologies in drug discovery and development
  3. Describe current pharmaceutical practice in cancer chemotherapy
  4. Identify the role of pharmacists as genomics counsellors in the development of novel personalised anticancer strategies.
