Help! My doctor doesn’t have time for me!
February 11, 2020 at 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm$15
Many patients are frustrated by restrictions on their medical appointments – they might be too short, or sometimes doctors use the “1 issue per visit” rule. That frustration is understandable, because these practices often waste patients’ time with multiple trips to the doctor, and can lead to drawn out and fragmented care. If your goal is more timely and effective care, join Kirstin Veugelers, Personal Patient Navigator from Navigate Your Health, to learn some strategies and tools, and how working with an advocate can help you to work better with your doctor, in spite of resource shortages.
A portion of the proceeds raised from this event will be donated to Caregivers Alberta.
