1025-18:  Integrating Psychiatric Pharmacogenomics into Clinical Nursing Practice

Implementation of pharmacogenomics testing (PGT) into psychiatric nursing practice is lacking, likely due to limited awareness and resources coupled with lack of understanding regarding testing methods and utility. This presentation will address these barriers and promote inclusion in care. Interactive case examples will engage participants in this session.
