Social Networking For Pharmacists

Drug Store News has partnered up with Skipta to form a pharmacists social networking site.  Interesting.

1. Why Skipta versus some other forum?  [Personally I prefer less places to log in not another one]

2. Will pharmacists use it?  [TBD]

3. Is it good to have a private social networking location?  [Probably if used appropriately]

4. Wouldn’t it be great to use this to facilitate pharmacist and MD dialogue on key topics – adherence?

I’m not sure what else to say on this yet.  Obviously, pharmacists have the same issues as doctors – do you friend your patients, what liability do you have for what you say in these channels, is it considered medical advice, etc.
