Assessing feasibility of delivering pharmacogenetic testing in a community pharmacy setting.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

AIM: To describe the rationale and design of a study evaluating the delivery of pharmacogenetic (PGx) testing in community pharmacies. Study rationale: Pharmacists have expressed interest in offering PGx testing; however, their lack of knowledge and experience, patients' acceptance and feasibility are unknown in this setting. STUDY DESIGN: Through a cluster randomized trial, we will assess pharmacist and patient experiences with delivery of PGx testing as a standalone service or integrated into medication therapy management services. Anticipated results: We anticipate that PGx testing can be delivered in a community pharmacy setting and accepted and valued by patients. CONCLUSION: This study is expected to provide valuable evidence about the real-world feasibility and acceptance of a community pharmacist-delivered approach of PGx testing.
