Women critique media as source of health information

BY DSN STAFF

NEW YORK — Where do women turn for information on more sensitive health topics? Do women believe that men’s health issues get more attention in the media? To get answers to these questions, as well as many others, DSNTV recently took to the streets of Manhattan to speak with women to get their perspectives.

The video, titled "Insights Into Women’s Health," is the first of a two-part series sponsored by Insight Pharmaceuticals, whose brand portfolio includes EPT and Monistat.

"If anybody watches TV, it seems every other commercial is about Cialis or some kind of male-stimulating pill. I’d say men’s health gets much more attention just in the popular media unless you’re reading a specific women-related magazine …" one woman told DSNTV.

When asked what would make it easier to get information on more embarrassing women-specific health issues, one woman said, "full access to my gynecologist whenever I may need or perhaps at a drug store, if there was someone there that knew more about that area and I could ask them questions."

Bob Narveson on pharmacy’s role in health care

BY DSN STAFF

FARGO, N.D. — This is going to be a big year for community pharmacy, said Thrifty White president and CEO Bob Narveson, as the nation reaches full implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act in 2014.

"But to be successful, we are going to have to maintain access to those patients," Narveson told DSNTV last month in a frank and broad-ranging discussion about the state of the industry, the role community pharmacy can play in healthcare reform, and how NACDS member companies like his own are innovating patient care, driving improved outcomes and lowering costs.

"We’re changing the model," Narveson, the incoming NACDS chairman, told DSNTV in part one of an an exclusive DSN Executive Viewpoint video interview sponsored by Upsher Smith. "I honestly believe the role of the pharmacist is NOT to put pills in a bottle. The role of the pharmacist is to work with the patient and keep them healthy."
