Creating a good team culture, and optimizing my personal performance as a good patient
What we’d most want our friends and loved ones to know
When you need treatment, you deserve a physician who will appreciate your beliefs and values, and who will offer you choices. Someone who will focus on personalized, precision care that is specific to you and your situation. Someone who will be candid with you about the pros, cons, and costs associated with different treatments, and the different places where the same treatment can be received.
And most important, someone who you trust and whose advice you respect.
And finally, someone who will respect that the final decisions about your care are yours. Not theirs.
How we might help
Understand how to influence the basis of your relationship with your providers to create an environment where you can receive care and treatment that is personalized for your unique needs, beliefs, and circumstances. At the end of this chapter, you will understand how to communicate better with your providers and and know what questions to ask and information to offer so you can fill your role as a ‘model’ patient, and in doing so make it easier for your providers to deliver the best possible advice for your unique needs.
Some areas we’ll cover
Remember: We coach, support, educate, and empower. We illuminate options you may not have known you had. But we don't decide what's right for you in your unique circumstances; only you can do that. And we don't provide medical, financial, or legal advice; nor do we replace the valuable counsel of those who do.
