How to prepare for your next appointment with your doctor or nurse

Using the PATH to good communication could help you get the most from your next appointment with your doctor or nurse.

  • Prepare. Decide what you want to talk about before your appointment. What is important to you? You may want to write down any questions or concerns.
  • Ask. Do not forget to bring your concerns or questions with you. Don’t be afraid to ask your doctor or nurse for clarification on things they’ve already told you.
  • Take Notes. During your appointment, it may be worthwhile writing down some of the answers, as it can be useful to refer back to.
  • Honesty. Your doctor or nurses are there to help and support you. Sharing your questions and concerns may help your treatment and condition.
