Abstract

Aim: To assess impact and value of using clinical decision support (CDS) to drive providers toward online pharmacogenomics education. Materials & methods: CDS was used to target prescribers of codeine/tramadol, send an educational email, display alert/inbox and provide links to an online resource. Providers were surveyed to assess impact. Results: Of the methods used to target providers, educational email was more effective (7.2%). Survey response rate was 29.2% (n = 528/1817). Of respondents, 57.4% reported opening the email and 27.1% accessed the online resource. Of those accessing the resource, 89% found it useful and learned something new about pharmacogenomics. Conclusion: The impact of using CDS to target pharmacogenomics education was limited. However, providers accessing the online resource found it useful and educational.
