The Patient Talk website extends the access to the nurse-patient relationship for greater information sharing and support to patients in choosing the health options that best meet their needs. This site offers high-quality health information to assist you in making informed decisions about taking care of your health, preventing disease, getting correct diagnoses, making good treatment choices and getting the best clinical care.
Research shows that patients and consumers who take a more active role in their health decisions will live healthier lives and be more satisfied with their health care and treatment results.
In addition to the information you find here, it is important to talk to your doctor, nurse or pharmacist. Your relationship with your health care professional should be a partnership.
When the responsibility for health care decisions is shared, you and your health care professionals are more likely to choose the health options that will meet your needs. So ask questions and express your wish for more information.
