Fact Sheets and Checklists
We have compiled fact sheets and checklists from reputable online sources to help you find the best information, to assist you in making excellent health decisions, and to allow you to fully participate in your medical care.
These fact sheets provide specific guidance in key areas including doctor visits, speaking up about your care, second opinions, infection control and preventing medical errors. Please read the fact sheets, print them, and refer to them when interacting with your providers or when you or a loved one is hospitalized. These forms can assist patients and their advocates in communicating effectively with providers, in asking important and appropriate questions, and in preventing many adverse events.
The right information and the ability to put this knowledge to use is the first crucial step in becoming an engaged and empowered member of your health care team.
