How can the programs help if you’re already working with a doctor?
- When you participate in a program, your nurse will help you by supporting your existing relationships with doctors — and can also help you establish relationships with new care providers, if needed.
- Doctor’s appointments can sometimes feel rushed. Also, during an appointment, you might not know exactly what to ask. For that reason, nurses can help suggest important questions to ask during appointments to help improve communication with your doctor. This helps ensure you get the information you need.
- If you have a tough decision to make about treatment, your nurse can offer information about your options, so you can make an informed decision. Also, your nurse can help schedule appointments or speak with your doctor.
