ISONG will once again offer a day of Pre-Congress Sessions!
9:00 AM - 12:00 PM - Session A
Getting Omics into the Mix: Strategies for Research and Education
New discoveries from nurse scientists using omics-based research approaches continue to shape clinical nursing practice. This workshop will strengthen this critical research field by educating and refreshing current nurse scientists and those in training and offer an opportunity for sharing strategies used by peers when integrating omics technologies into nursing research and education. More specifically, this workshop will cover available omics technologies, strategies for their use, recommendations for education about them, and techniques for collaboration among peers in the nursing genetics world.

Integrating Sex and Gender in Nursing Omics Research
Incorporating sex and gender into health systems research is the first step of personalized medicine and patient-centered care. This workshop will provide an overview of strategies, methods, and research designs incorporating sex and gender variables, with an emphasis on “omics” studies (genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics) that can lead to novel discoveries to better understand sex/gender-related health disparities, and can profoundly change healthcare policies and strategies to improve the quality of nursing education and clinical work. The material covered will equip participants with basic concepts on “omics” experimental approaches, as well as research designs incorporating sex as a biological variable and tools to redirect their research to the study of sex and gender differences.

1:00 PM - 4:00 PM - Session C
Pharmacogenomics has strong potential to improve patient outcomes. Nurses play a critical role in pharmacogenomics’ research and therapeutics and clinical care for patients. In this Pre-Conference Workshop, Dr. Cheek will share his extensive knowledge and experience with pharmacogenomics to inform current and future knowledge for nurses in genomics. Dr. Cheek’s workshop is comprehensive for novel and advanced genomic nurses, and will cover basics of pharmacogenomics, implications of pharmacogenomics testing, current use of pharmacogenomics therapeutics and its impact my clinical practice. Additionally, participants will learn and discuss about the future of pharmacogenomics and nursing.
