Ethnopsychopharmacology: Clinical and scientific writing pearls.

The concept of ethnopsychopharmacology aims to predict or explain the pharmacologic response to psychiatric medications based on the influence of biologic and nonbiologic factors. Interactions involving these factors are complex and influence patient outcomes in health care. Pharmacists and other clinicians working in patient care environments, research, or medical education should engage in lifelong learning to enhance ethnopsychopharmacologic knowledge gaps, which ultimately may improve and individualize care across diverse populations. Through two cases, this paper provides pearls on how biogeographical ancestry and cytochrome P450 status may influence pharmacotherapy selection, dosing, or response. A third scenario highlights a publication, like many other published works, with deficiencies in how data on ancestry, race, and ethnicity are collected or reported. Current recommendations on the use of inclusive language in scientific writing are reviewed, with attention to specific examples.
