How to Talk to Your Doctor


From: Aug 17, 2017 01:00 pm
To: Aug 17, 2017 03:00 pm
 
A free and open to the public discussion with Nate Fox, fourth year medical student at UNM Medical School in Albuquerque. Nate met with WILL members in February, 2017, and began a fascinating dialogue on our medical care. He will continue this discussion and answer questions members may have on how to prepare for the best medical visit ever. This talk is sponsored by WILL and will be held on the WNMU campus in the Global Resource Center's ABC room. For more information call 575-538-6835

In his talk, Nate will:
1. Describe the ideal patient-provider relationship and how it can be a partnership.
2. Discuss your rights and responsibilities as a patient.
3. Explain the language your provider will be using in your patient visit, and what he or she will be hoping to learn from you about the reason for your visit.
4. Discuss how you can communicate effectively with your provider and ensure that your concerns are heard.
5. Clarify how you can leave your visit with a better understanding of the plan you and your provider have created.
6. Discuss resources available to you aimed at improving your navigation and utilization of the health care system.

Invited: Everyone
