The National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship and Dr Thomas J. Smith has developed an easy questionnaire for you when you visit your doctor.
The Know Yourself Worksheet helps patients prepare for a visit to their doctor and discuss their preferences with their family and health care team. Use these prompts to help you prepare for your doctor's visit and discuss your wishes with your physician and family.
The worksheet explores:
a. Hopes and goals about your diagnosis.
b. Personal goals and milestones.
c. Quality of life during and after treatment.
d. Impact of disease and side effects.
e. Other concerns.
