Powerful Health Care Decisions

The constant message we hear is “fix the healthcare system”. The message we do not hear is how we, as patients, can be better educated and develop the skills needed so we can set the tone for the shared decision-making conversation with healthcare providers and play a key role in this conversation.

Having a solid strategy for gathering trusted and dependable information is critical for making informed treatment decisions when it comes to your health. It is also important to be able to communicate assertively with healthcare practitioners as an equal partner in shared decision-making. This results in a greater sense of freedom, well-being, and confidence.

The Powerful Healthcare Decisions courses help you do this.

Here are some of the questions that the training can help you answer…

In the world of 15-minute appointments and a system with limited resources, where it is especially important to be able to effectively communicate with healthcare practitioners….

  • How do I discern among sources of information that I can trust about my illness and treatment options?
  • How do I develop the skills for advocating for what I need and want in managing my health care in conversations with healthcare practitioners?
  • What do I do when I do not understand what a healthcare practitioner is saying?
  • What do I say when a healthcare practitioner talks down to me or minimizes or downplays my symptoms?

If you were to receive a diagnosis that could alter your life, are you prepared to answer these questions?

  • What quality of life do I want?
  • How much risk am I willing to take in terms of treatment?
  • Can I do this on my own?
  • How can I make an intentional health care decision and not live in regret if things do not work out as planned?

If not, you should prepare now, not when you are ill. Our training will help you do this.
