On February 2, from 12:00 to 1:00 pm ‘Communicating with your Healthcare Team’ led by Dr. Jason LaChance will discuss how to communicate effectively with your doctor, nurses, and other members of your healthcare team. A cancer diagnosis opens a world of questions for the patient and their care partners, but many often struggle with communicating their questions to their healthcare team. How do you let a physician know what is important to you? You will get answers to questions such as:
- What life experiences might impact your decisions?
- What if you change your mind?
- What are the benefits of a second opinion?
- What if I do not understand what I am being told?
