Speaker Notes We re going to talk today about how to improve communication with doctors. nurses dentists and pharmacists and make sure we understand the important information they. tell us Have any of you ever wanted to ask your doctor a question but weren t sure how to bring it. up Did any of you bring questions with you today, Speaker Notes Please look at these pictures and tell me what you think is happening. Ask participants what they feel is happening in the pictures and invite discussion. Speaker Notes Have you ever seen a label like this What are the possible side effects of this. medicine It may not be clear at first Notice how you really have to pay attention to the label in. order to identify a side effect from the drug, Potential answers to the question What are the possible side effects of this medicine include. drowsiness excitability driving impairment,Read from slide and invite discussion. Speaker Notes If you have experienced any of these two examples at the doctor s office or. reading a label you are not alone Many people have a hard time getting and understanding the. health information they need, A major reason people have a hard time with health information is that it is often complex A lot.
of health information involves unfamiliar words and lots of numbers In addition short visits with. doctors nurses and pharmacists make it difficult to get answers to all your questions. Finding understanding and talking about health information is necessary to make sense of. today s complex healthcare system and maintain good health. During today s workshop we will discuss one way to make using the healthcare system a little. easier to use That technique is based on building a relationship with your doctors nurses. pharmacists and dentists by asking the right questions and engaging them in your care. After today s workshop I hope you leave here better informed and ready to ask questions and. encourage other people in your life to become more active about their health. GOOD QUESTIONS FOR GOOD HEALTH 3,Presentation Notes. Speaker Notes In too many of our medical visits doctors and nurses are not very clear when. describing health information to patients, In fact only 1 in 10 Americans can really make sense of and use health information like. instructions you get when you leave the hospital, Research and Resources 2003 National Assessment of Adult Literacy study National. Assessment of Adult Literacy, The problem goes beyond just not understanding information Researchers now know that. when people actively get involved during doctor visits they are more likely to be satisfied follow. recommendations and get better results, Also people are more likely to manage their ongoing diseases read labels correctly take their.
medicine according to the directions get care that prevents health problems use the emergency. room less and be hospitalized less than people who aren t as involved in their health. So people who ask their doctors and nurses questions and take an active role are happier with. their care and see more improvement in their health than people who don t. Speaker Notes Today we will talk about,How to find and understand health information. Some simple techniques to make sure we better understand the information we get. We ll also do a brief activity, Speaker Notes Let s look at results from a 2012 survey asking U S adults Where did you turn to. for health information the last time you had a serious health issue Notice that other people such. as health professionals and friends and family are common sources of information And as you. may expect the Internet is increasingly a source of health information for many people But even. when people find health information on the Internet they often talk with people around them. about what they find, Research and Resources Pew Research Center Family Caregivers and Health Care Info. Speaker Notes How many of you have used information from sources like Google Web MD or. other online sources to find health information invite discussion about their experiences. GOOD QUESTIONS FOR GOOD HEALTH 4,Presentation Notes. People turn to other people to help them interpret discuss and develop meaning from the. information they find online Specifically 2 out of 3 e patients talk with someone else about what. they find online most often a friend or spouse, Not everyone looks for information just for themselves Half of all online health searches 52 are.
for someone other than the person doing the search Some of you may have children parents or. older relatives or friends who rely on you to help them with health questions or problems We may. feel confident that we can get what we need from our complex healthcare system but the people. we care for may need extra support, How many of you have ever gone to a doctor s appointment with a loved one How many of you. have shared health information with friends or family. Invite discussion, Research and Resources The Social Life of Health Information. Speaker Notes Even though communication technologies like the Internet continue to change. and increase our access to health information doctors nurses and pharmacists continue to be. the number one source of trusted health information A good relationship between a patient and. doctor can have a tremendous positive impact on your health. Let s think about the doctor patient relationship On one side you have the patient that s you. or the person you re caring for No one knows you better than yourself You know best what you. eat how much you exercise and what medicines you take Also you are probably the one with. greatest self interest in trying to be healthy On the other side is the doctor or the nurse or the. pharmacist They have years of education experience and want you to be healthy However they. are busy see many patients and can only spend a limited amount of time with each person There. are things you can do to help your doctor do her job and maximize your understanding and. chances of getting the help you want, Take for example medicine instructions When a doctor prescribes medicine and you have to take. it on your own at home maybe you have a caregiver to help you re the one who has to make. sure you take the medicine according to the directions You or the caregiver also are responsible. for reporting bad reactions issues of cost or confusing instructions to your doctor nurse or. pharmacist You can help yourself by asking questions ahead of time and knowing who to contact. if you have more questions so that you re prepared when it s time to take the medicine.
