Have you ever felt frustrated or unheard when trying to communicate with your doctor?
If you answered yes, you’re invited to reserve a seat at the Conversations on Care (Convo’s on Care) virtual table gathering at my free, members-only Facebook group.
Having you to feel heard is why this space exists.
Convo’s on Care is for curious, wise, age-defying women who know they were born wanting more than tired solutions, the status quo, and the way it’s always been done.
This community is for you whether you are going to a new doctor, you’re helping a parent through an illness, you’ve been visiting the same doctor for decades or you’re healthy and wondering about what advocacy can look like for you.
Why be so focused on your conversation with your doctor?
Because it creates the roadmap to your health journey – and you deserve a good one.
Most people learn to have a conversation with their doctor in the moment, often alone and without ever being guided.
Medicine and health care advance quickly, isn’t it time to advance how we communicate?
With small changes you can be your best partner in your health journey.
Because even with good people at your doctor’s office, and a doctor you trust, if you don’t have some structure for the short amount of time you’re given for your visit it’s common for:
I never knew I could tell my doctor no.
“ I never knew I could tell my doctor no.”
What was frightening too is that I had never said no. I had shared the options discussed.
Have you ever?
Had I ever?
It may be difficult to know.
But you deserve better than guessing at an answer.
Don’t you deserve to have a foundation to build a conversation on for potentially one of the most significant conversations of your life?
In my nursing career I shared-in or witnessed 100’s (likely 1,000’s) of patient-physician conversations. And I had my own conversations with patients too – often repeating or clarifying what was previously said.
And, as a nurse navigator, focused on patient advocacy, the quality of communication was a noticeable source of frustration, complaint, error – or empowerment and positivity.
I still strive to improve how I say things especially because –
I believe there is a way to communicate better.
My mission is to show you how.
Look forward to joining you at the table,
