Taking Control of Your Health

We all have to talk to doctors and other health professionals at some time in our life. For many people visits to doctors can be hurried and confusing. We don’t always get the chance to discuss everything we wanted to talk about and the advice and instructions we get are not always clear and easy to understand.

You have the right to be an active member of your healthcare team. This means that you should ask questions, demand that people listen to you and your wishes, and know your rights.

Anthony Brown from Health Consumers NSW will give tips and advice on how to make the most of your visits to health care providers with some simple steps we can all take before, during and after our visit.

We will also discuss ways that patients can get involved with helping to make the experience of using health services better for everyone.

This talk is not intended to be a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition.
