Talking With Your Doctor
This four-page handout helps people with cancer communicate with doctors and nurses who are treating them. It discusses communication between doctor and patient, identifies important information that patients need, and provides a list of common questions to ask their health care team. The document recommends things patients can do to remember the information they receive at doctor's visits, encourage communication between doctors, and take a more active role in their own cancer care and treatment. It includes American Cancer Society contacts for more information.
