Questions Are The Answer

Help your patients get more involved in their healthcare by asking questions, talking with the healthcare team, and understanding their condition.

Research shows that patients who have a good relationship with their healthcare team receive better care and are more satisfied. Patients and families who engage with healthcare providers ask good questions and help reduce the chance of mistakes, tests that are not needed, and avoidable hospital stays.

The resources below will help your patients prepare for their medical appointments, ask questions, and talk with you and other members of the health care team.

Patients can use the online tools, including the Question Builder that lets them create a list of questions, to get the most out of their healthcare visit.
