Self-Assessment - Play it Safe

You are the most important person on the medication review team. What you choose to share or not share can affect your health outcomes, so it is very important that you partner with your healthcare team. Before your next visit ask yourself the following questions and then share your answers with your provider:


 
 
 


 
 
 


 
 
 


 
 
 


 
 
 


 
 
 

Being prepared for your visit makes it easier for you to work with your healthcare team and cover things you may want to talk about at your next clinic visit. Sharing this information also gives the healthcare team the chance to review your medications and make sure that there are no problems with medications you are taking.

Tip of the Day

Tip of Day

Here's something to consider:
A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine looked at a large group of retired elderly, nonsmoking men who were followed for 12 years. Those who walked less than 1 mile/day were almost 2 times more likely to die from any cause than those who walked more than 2 miles/day. So, let's get to walking! Every day!
