ASHP Announces New Pharmacogenomics Accelerator Program

Published: November 15, 2021

ASHP is pleased to announce the creation of the Pharmacogenomics AcceleratorTM program in collaboration with the University of Minnesota College of Pharmacy to accelerate the implementation and growth of pharmacy-led pharmacogenomics services in hospitals and health systems.

The Pharmacogenomics Accelerator program will support clinical leaders, frontline practitioners, and additional team members that are assuming responsibility for pharmacogenomic program implementation in your institutions, as well as those seeking to enhance their baseline clinical skills in pharmacogenomics. The new learning collaborative will offer a wide range of learning experiences for pharmacy professionals, including webinars and events with subject matter experts, access to multiple resources and activity streams, as well as individualized support from an implementation coach, with the goal of: 

  • Catalyzing pharmacy leadership in pharmacogenomics service development
  • Accelerating the design and implementation of comprehensive pharmacogenomics services that demonstrate value to patients, health-systems leaders, and payers
  • Creating an environment that supports shared learning and celebrates successes of leading-edge organizations investing in pharmacogenomics services

The new program is part of the ASHP Innovation Center’s pharmacogenomics focus and ASHP’s broader personalized medicine efforts, which aim to optimize medication outcomes for patients and support pharmacists who are uniquely positioned to take a prominent role in incorporating pharmacogenomics into clinical practice. 

ASHP is offering an open-access webinar, Accelerating Implementation of Pharmacogenomics to Improve Patient Health, on Nov. 30 at 1 p.m. ET to learn more about this new program. Cohorts for the program will begin in spring 2022.
