Quality Healthcare? You can help

doctor listenDid you know that you can contribute to ensuring a quality health care encounter? One sure way is to ask your health care providers for the guidelines they are using to treat your care-either in advance or at the time of the service.

Guidelines vary between organizations as well as between practitioners with a single organization. By having this valuable "requirements" information you will have an opportunity to become acquainted with your treatment plan and ask questions.

You play a very critical role in your recovery/treatment.
Be an informed consumer of health services.
