1] Be actively involved in your own health care. Take part in every decision to prevent things from going wrong and always get the best possible care for your needs.
2] Speak up if you have any questions or concerns. Ask questions. Expect answers that you can understand. Ask a family member, carer or interpreter to be there with you, if that makes you feel more comfortable.
3] Learn more about your condition or treatments. Collect as much reliable information as you can. Ask your health professional:
* What should I look out for?
* Please tell me more about my condition, tests and treatment.
* How will the tests help me and what is involved?
* What are the risks and what is likely to happen if I don't have the treatment?
4] Keep a list of all medicines you are taking. Include:
* Prescriptions, over-the-counter and complimentary medicines (eg vitamins and herbs).
* Information about any drug allergies you may have.
5] Make sure you understand the medicines you are taking. Read the label, including the warnings. Make sure it is what the doctor ordered.
6] Get the results of any test or procedure. Call your doctor to find out any results. Ask what they mean for your care.
7] Talk about your options if you need to go into hospital. Ask:
* How quickly does this need to happen?
* Is there an option to have the surgery or procedure done as a day patient, or in an alternative hospital?
8] Make sure you understand what will happen if you need surgery or a procedure. Ask:
* What will the surgery or procedure involve and are there any risks?
* Are there other possible treatments?
* How much will it cost?
9] Make sure you, your doctor and your surgeon all agree exactly what will be done. Confirm which operation will be performed and where, as close as possible to it happening.
10] Before you leave the hospital ask your health care professional to explain the treatment plan you will use at home. Make sure you understand your continuing treatment, medicines and follow-up care. Visit your GP as soon as possible after you are discharged.
