Your Health Care - Be Involved

Your safety is our concern. In order to have the best health care become an active member of your health care team. 

Here are some ways to Be Involved: 

  • Ask questions and talk about your concerns
  • Know the medications you take and why you take them
  • Carry a current list of medications and herbal products you take to share with all health care providers
  • Carry a list of your current medical conditions, allergies, past problems and surgeries
  • Make sure you know what to do when you leave the hospital, clinic, program or doctor's office

When you are involved, you can make better decisions about your treatment plan. For more information, there is a booklet called "Your Health Care - Be Involved" published by the Ontario Hospital Association.
