Relating to health care professionals


I think giving patients a choice goes a long way. Even if it’s not necessarily a yes or no choice but in certain circumstances that’s not always the case. Sometimes with children, they just need to know that they can make the decision and you don’t ask them if they want toast with peanut butter you say “Do you want toast with peanut butter or do you want toast with jam?” And giving them that choice…you’re still going to have toast but which way would you kind of like to have it? I think that patients feel a bit more involved in their treatment if they’re given those kind of choices especially when it comes to something like this.
