Tips on how to communicate with your healthcare provider

It is very important to communicate with your healthcare providers to get all the information you need about which examinations and treatments are available. You often have a choice in which treatment or examination you think is right for your child. Your healthcare provider can tell you about the pros and cons so you can discuss which option is best for your child. If a treatment is suggested, you usually don’t need t say ‘yes’ or ‘no’ right away. You can think about it at home or ask for another appointment. You don’t have to make these difficult decisions by yourself. You can do this together with your healthcare provider and you can always bring someone you confide in for support.

 
If your doctor doesn't go through all the steps mentioned above, it is important that you ask these 3 questions.
