Molecular Tumor Boards, Pathways, and Precision Medicine
Originally presented at HOPA's 14th Annual Conference, March 2018.
Precision medicine is an emerging field that uses genomic sequencing to direct treatment options for patients. Oncology clinical pharmacists have been at the forefront of precision medicine efforts since their inception, and molecular tumor boards, often led by clinical pharmacists, are leading care optimization. This session aims to provide insight into current and emerging practices in molecular tumor boards across the nation. Key topics will include assessment of tumor somatic mutations, germline mutations, and the role of the clinical pharmacist in directing therapy. Real-life case and outcomes will be presented to illustrate this emerging field. This session is geared to practitioners of all levels, and researchers and administrators will gain valuable insights into precision medicine.
