Talking With Your Doctor
Get the most out of your time with your doctor!
Peer facilitators lead this 1.5 hour interactive workshop to empower patients to be active participants in their health care. An active patient asks questions, voices concerns and has opinions about their care which they share with their doctor(s) and other healthcare professionals. Using the PACE framework, we explore common challenges with doctor-patient interactions and learn techniques on how to improve them.
Learn how to:
- be prepared for your visit
- state your concerns clearly and honestly
- provide a complete description of your condition
- ask questions about your condition and its treatment
- express problems with prescribed treatments
Come away from this session with tips to encourage collaboration and improve communication with your doctor(s) and other healthcare professionals.
