Medical Challenges

Starting a New Treatment Plan

Navigating a new treatment plan can elicit mixed emotions – on one hand, starting a new plan may seem daunting, while on the other, a change can provide hope and excitement. Having transparent communication with your healthcare team will make a huge difference during this process. Be open, honest, and prepared with questions will ensure that your concerns are addressed. It’s not always what you ask, but how you ask the question, that will ensure you receive accurate and relevant information. To help in this process, a tip sheet on Medication and Testing can help with appropriate questions for your healthcare team.
