The Erectile Dysfunction (ED) Conversation
Watch and learn how experts manage the ED conversation
The launch of VIAGRA Connect as a pharmacy medicine should make it easier for men with ED to seek help at an earlier stage of their treatment journey.
The impact of ED on an individual and his partner can be considerable, as the ability to have an erection is important to a man's perception of his own wellbeing. ED could lead to a man feeling anxious, depressed and lacking in self-confidence. Many men do not seek help from a healthcare professional because they are embarrassed.1,2 These videos show how experts have been able to have the ED conversation successfully by addressing these issues of anxiety.
The interest generated by VIAGRA Connect creates an excellent opportunity for pharmacists to engage with men around the wider potential health concerns associated with ED, such as cardiovascular disease.
Our bite-sized videos and presentation materials are designed to help pharmacists prepare for the ED conversation and become confident in counselling men with the condition. Covering a wide range of subject matter, the materials show how having the ED conversation with men may help you improve male health in this hard-to-reach group.
