You and your family or friends
You are part of your health care team. Doctors and nurses may know more about medicine, but you are the expert on you.
Your family and friends can be a part of your health care team, if you like. Families and friends are not visitors but are part of your health care team. They can give you comfort and support. They also can tell your doctors and nurses about your needs and concerns.
Patients get better care when they talk with their doctor. This short, easy-to-read brochure gives tips that will help you be prepared before, during, and after medical appointments. Be More Involved in Your Health Care.
