Communicating with your Treatment Team
It helps to keep the lines of communication open with your team. Remember to tell them about any changes in your symptoms — and in your overall health. Try to share your feelings and frustrations, and don’t be shy about sharing updates on your progress. Even the smallest everyday victories count. The more honest you are, the more your team can help you. Always remember that they are working to help you manage your symptoms.
Caregivers: Caring with a personal touch
While not a healthcare professional, a caregiver is an important member of your overall support team. Usually a family member or special friend, a caregiver can help you with many things, including:
- Scheduling and going with you to your healthcare provider appointments
- Daily activities
- Monitoring your symptoms
- Discussing treatment options
- Emotional support
- Communicating with healthcare providers
