And yet another was uncomfortable having male health professionals examine her and preferred to be seen by a female. In all of these cases, Leonard Benoit, an Aboriginal patient navigator with the Toronto Central Regional Cancer Program, was their advocate. Mr. Benoit’s job – which the seasoned nurse began more than six months ago – was created to...

Many Pharmacies Don't Follow Opioid Antidote Law

By Steven Reinberg HealthDay Reporter TUESDAY, Nov. 13, 2018 (HealthDay News) -- People who overdose on opioids have one lifeline, the drug naloxone, but two new studies find that many pharmacies won't offer this lifesaving antidote without a doctor's blessing. Though many states have passed laws mandating that naloxone be made available without a prescription, researchers from California found that fewer than 25 percent of pharmacies in that state would give the drug without a prescription. And in the second study from Texas, investigators found that although 8 in 10 drugstores would dispense the drug, less than 7 in 10...

Many drugstores won't dispense opioid antidote as required

(HealthDay)—People who overdose on opioids have one lifeline, the drug naloxone, but two new studies find that many pharmacies won't offer this lifesaving antidote without a doctor's blessing. Though many states have passed laws mandating that be made available without a prescription, researchers from California found that fewer than 25 percent of pharmacies in that state would give the drug without a prescription. And in the second study from Texas, investigators found that although 8 in 10 drugstores would dispense the drug, less than 7 in 10 had naloxone in stock. Why? A lack of training, a lack of desire...
