Through analyses of the complex underlying issues, this interdisciplinary volume frames the agenda for dealing with genetic variation and incorporating pharmacogenomics into health care. The three sections of this book, Research Issues, Clinical Issues, and Social Perspectives address key elements integral to a comprehensive discussion of this emerging field. This groundbreaking text...* Examines new research strategies, methodologies, and ethical and social considerations of pharmacogenomics* Addresses practical considerations of anticipated changes in education, training, oversight, guidelines and protocols, and continuing education requirements* Provides analyses of the potential enormous impact of pharmacogenomics, such as in the standard of care and treatment, including perspectives from the fields of anthropology, law, ethics, and economics
