Make the most of your appointment

Friday, March 3, 2023

It can be daunting having an appointment and sometimes there is more than one treatment available.

Here are four questions you might want to think about at your appointment.

What are the Benefits?

What are the Risks?

What are the Alternatives?

What if I do Nothing?

Please use this as a reminder to ask questions about treatment.

If you choose not to have treatment now, it does not mean you cannot change your mind at a later stage. We know circumstances and conditions change.

You can talk with your healthcare professional about how to seek support later if you decide to do nothing now.

You may want to talk over all your options with family or friends.

It’s also helpful to think about what affect these options will have on you and your lifestyle.

If there is anything you are unsure about, please ask.
