Pharmacogenetics Flipbook

Modeled after flipbooks used by genetic counselors to educate patients about genetics, genetic testing and disease risk, this flipbook provides graphic representation of many concepts important to understanding the purpose, risks and benefits of pharmacogenetic testing. Also included are drug-specific information sheets for a selection of medications known to have associated pharmacogenes.

This flipbook was developed in 2017 using expert input from a Duke research team including a pharmacist, genetic counselor and geneticist. Feedback was obtained from members of the general population in Durham, NC and improvements were made based on their comments and suggestions. This tool was created for an NIH-funded project (ClinicalTrials.gov NCT02937545). Click the cover photo or link below to download.
