Within public health and individualized or precision medicine, there remains a knowledge deficit for pharmacists as well as other healthcare professionals in pharmacogenomics and its clinical applications. Interprofessional education (IPE) is defined by the World Health Organization as “when students from two or more professions learn about, from, and with each other to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes.” IPE is an important aspect in current health education and is necessary to train our students for the collaborative practice environment. Interprofessional research and educational experiences focused on collaborative approaches to the teaching and delivery of individualized medicine would work towards narrowing the knowledge gap and improve patient care.
The purpose of this special issue of IJPREH is to collect and publish thoughtful and well-written manuscripts on topics including but not limited to pharmaceutical research and interprofessional education and practice, particularly related to pharmacogenomics. All submitted manuscripts will go through a rigorous peer review process.
