Why do you need a Healthcare Consultant when you interact with medical services?
When your family asks you what the doctor said – can you tell them? Do you wish you had it written in plain language?
The drug information sheet the Pharmacist gave you lists many possible side effects – these seem worse than your symptoms. It scares you; who do you talk to?
You are not alone; I can help you.
I am a Registered Nurse and can lessen your fear and increase your understanding of what your physician is recommending.
I can meet with you prior to your scheduled appointment to talk about why you are going to the doctor and help you prepare for the appointment.
I can attend your Medical appointment with you for support and to ensure you discuss your issues with your physician.
I can ensure your physician understands your complaint and help you understand your physician’s recommendations.
I can work with you to set up future appointments to follow up on the treatment plan.
With your permission, I can provide you a written account of the physician visit, the recommended treatment plan and suggested next steps. I can give you this report in plain language and you can share with your family and discuss what you want to do.
As a Registered Nurse in your community, I can help lessen your worry for your family member/parent. If you live at a distance from your parent(s) and need to ensure they are eating, mobilizing and taking their prescriptions as ordered, with all parties authorization, I can arrange a home visit and provide recommendations.
