Meet Paul Roux: An Experienced Dispensary Manager

With over 15 years of experience in the healthcare sector, Paul Roux embarked on his pharmaceutical journey by pursuing a b-pharm degree through North-West University (NWU). His passion for medicine is evident in his work, where he sees the role of pharmacists as crucial in bridging the gap between customers and doctors.

Paul emphasises the vital role pharmacies play in providing essential medical assistance, serving as the first point of contact for individuals seeking healthcare support. He values the relationships healthcare professionals build with customers, assisting them throughout their healthcare journey.

Dis-Chem Academy Application: A Comprehensive Learning Tool

According to Paul, the Dis-Chem Academy application goes beyond being a mere learning platform. While it covers content on medication and healthcare, it also provides valuable insights into structural information, keeping Dis-Chem staff updated on current events within the healthcare industry and the company itself.

As a dispensary manager, Paul finds the application instrumental in disseminating information to Dis-Chem pharmaceutical staff, ensuring uniformity in knowledge and compliance through CPD (Continuous Professional Development) certificates. He appreciates the convenience, accessibility, and time management afforded by the application, with content tailored for busy healthcare professionals.

Paul values the interactive and engaging courses that allow staff to learn at their own pace on mobile devices. With a diverse range of patients and a demanding work schedule, the Dis-Chem learning application remains a valuable asset for ongoing learning with pharmacists.

Product Review: Neurobion and Iliadin

Paul credits the Dis-Chem Academy application for enhancing his knowledge of pharmaceutical products, specifically through courses on Neurobion and iliadin. The brief, relevant, and straight-to-the-point content proves effective in refreshing his memory and staying informed about changes and updates related to these products.

The Neurobion course, in particular, played a crucial role during a stock shortage of vitamin B injections. Recommending Neurobion as a substitute treatment empowered patients and instilled confidence in their choice, showcasing the practical impact of ongoing learning.

The accessibility and concise nature of the content in the Neurobion and iliadin product courses contributed to their effectiveness. Completing the courses on mobile devices proved convenient for healthcare staff with busy schedules.

Looking Towards the Future: Anticipated Learning Opportunities

In Paul’s vision for the future, he suggests focusing on educating healthcare staff about antidepressants, antipsychotics, and other medications related to mental health. With an observed increase in patients seeking guidance for mental health concerns, Paul believes that informed healthcare professionals can better assist these patients.
