NCCN Pharmacy Updates: The Growing Impact of Pharmacogenomics Across the Oncology Landscape
Advances in pharmacogenomics are widespread in the treatment of cancer. The ongoing research in pharmacogenomics has played a vital role in the diagnosis and treatment of oncologic disease states. It is imperative for the interprofessional oncology care team to have a strong understanding of pharmacogenomics and the ability to correctly apply the standard of care for their patients.
This program is designed to meet the educational needs of pharmacists, physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician associates/assistants, and other health care professionals who manage patients with cancer.
Following this activity, participants should be able to:
- Describe pharmacogenomics and its application in the care of patients with cancer.
- Identify common genetic polymorphisms and their effect on the efficacy and/or toxicity of chemotherapy agents.
- Identify common genetic polymorphisms and their effect on the efficacy and/or toxicity of supportive care therapy used in the management of patients with cancer.

NCCN Continuing Education Disclosure Policy
It is the policy of NCCN that all planners, faculty, moderators, authors, reviewers and anyone involved in the planning and delivery of NCCN continuing education activities are expected to disclose ALL financial relationships they have had in the past 24 months with ineligible companies. The ACCME Standards for Integrity and Independence require that individuals who refuse to provide this information will be disqualified from involvement in the planning and implementation of accredited continuing education presented by NCCN. NCCN identifies, mitigates and discloses to learners all relevant financial relationships.
In addition, all content has been reviewed to ensure education promotes safe, effective patient care and does not promote the products or services of an ineligible company. Content, including any presentation of therapeutic options, is fair, balanced, evidence-based, scientifically accurate, and free of commercial bias and marketing.
Ineligible Company: An ineligible company is any entity whose primary business is producing, marketing, selling, re-selling, or distributing healthcare products used by or on patients.
Relevant Financial Relationships: Financial relationships of any dollar amount occurring within the past 24 months are defined as relevant if the educational content an individual can control is related to the business lines or products of an ineligible company. There is no minimum financial threshold. We ask for disclosure of ALL financial relationships with ineligible companies, regardless of the amount and regardless of the potential relevance of each relationship to the education.
All faculty for this continuing education activity are competent in the subject matter and qualified by experience, training, and/or preparation for the tasks and methods of delivery.
Faculty presentations may include discussion of off-label use. Faculty will disclose that the use in question is not currently approved by the FDA per the product labeling or marketing.
Full disclosure of faculty relationships will be made prior to the activity.
In support of improving patient care, National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.
