Tips to help you get the most from a visit to your child’s healthcare provider:

·         Know the reason for the visit and what you want to happen.

·         Before your visit, write down questions you want answered.

·         At the visit, write down the name of a new diagnosis, and any new medicines, treatments, or tests. Also write down any new instructions your provider gives you for your child.

·         Know why a new medicine or treatment is prescribed and how it will help your child. Also know what the side effects are.

·         Ask if your child’s condition can be treated in other ways.

·         Know why a test or procedure is recommended and what the results could mean.

·         Know what to expect if your child does not take the medicine or have the test or procedure.

·         If your child has a follow-up appointment, write down the date, time, and purpose for that visit.

·         Know how you can contact your child’s provider after office hours. This is important if your child becomes ill and you have questions or need advice.
