What Kind of Pharmacist am I?

I remember being a small child in my father’s pharmacy and before him my grandfather’s pharmacy and studying the interactions between the pharmacist and patients. I think about the impact those interactions had on my persona and my decision to go into this profession. No one in our town had more of an impact in the community than my dad did as the pharmacist.

Over the past 15 years, as a pharmacist, needless to say Norman Rockwell seems to have missed the mark for the 21st century pharmacist! I am fortunate enough to work with some amazing people and I watch the struggle everyday with serving patients (just like Norman portrayed) and meeting the demands of PBM’s, government regulations, decreased reimbursements, DIR fees and legislative pressures. Today's pharmacy is anything but glamourous and patient oriented!

I know we all struggle with pressures exerted on us to be the type of pharmacist we envisioned ourselves becoming when we committed to this profession years ago. I would love to tell you that you can choose to be the pharmacist Norman portrayed and that you do not need to worry about being the cutthroat business person that is politically active and aggressively looking for new avenues of resources because the old one are constantly decreasing. I can’t and I won’t tell you that. Pharmacists in this day and age must bring to the table a different type of personality than years ago.

We must be both Jekyll and Hyde. The Dr. Jekyll aspect is that it is still essential that we show our compassion for our patients and our love for this profession. We can make a tremendous impact on the vulnerable members of society whom we are fortunate enough to care for on a daily basis. Unfortunately we must also battle with the Mr. Hyde part of the pharmacist personality. We must assertively and aggressively protect our interest as pharmacists. We must be proactive and stay vigilant on changes in government regulations that affect our patients and our businesses. We must constantly fight and search for new sources of revenue within our pharmacies.

OPhA, PPOK, PBA are key players in promoting, developing, and empowering this type of thinking! Over the next year pharmacists across the state are going to be exposed to some of the ground breaking ideas that are already underway to improve your pharmacy practice and increase your revenue. We as a profession can no longer simply be Dr. Jekyll we must change to Mr. Hyde as needed in order to survive and thrive.
