Visit 2: Communicate

Discussing your current health and what you can expect in the future.

Once the PATH team has a complete understanding of your health, and how it may change in the future, they will talk openly with you and the person who attends clinic with you about what they have learned. You will be given ample time to ask questions and to discuss any concerns you or your family may have about your current health or how your situation may change in the future.

The goal is to make sure you understand everything about your situation and what to expect as time goes on. In order to reach this goal, the PATH team will provide you with readings which have been developed to help patients and their families understand more about specific illnesses (e.g. dementia) and topics such as medical decision making.
