Aging Well Series: Finding Your Voice - Making the Most Out of Your Medical Appointments

When: Monday, August 31, 2020 1:30 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Where: Zoom - Online,

The Sunnybrook Academic Family Health Team (SAFHT) will be offering our Aging Well series virtually via Zoom. The Aging Well series is designed to provide evidence and group-based education for 60+ individuals on healthy aging – how to keep well and be well!


August session:

Have you ever left your doctor’s appointment and realized you forgot to mention a symptom or ask a question? Do you sometimes have trouble fully understanding instructions you were given? Or do you sometimes feel like your voice is not being heard? This session will help provide a better understanding of your role as a patient. You will learn various communication styles, techniques, and strategies to improve your interaction with your healthcare providers. You will explore ways to prepare for the appointment, how to have your voice heard, and what you need to be successful with the self-management of your own health.

To register, please contact Tom Nguyen at tom.nguyen@sunnybrook.ca. Open to patients of the Sunnybrook Academic Family Health Team.
