Questions for your healthcare professional: A guide

If you’ve decided to talk to your healthcare professional, that’s a great first step as it means you’re one step closer to finding out if you have Hep C, or one step closer to treating it. Your healthcare professional will probably have a lot of information for you, so you should consider bringing a pencil and paper with you to the appointment to write down any questions you have. It’s also recommended to bring another person with you, just in case they think of a question that you may not.

Some people think of the questions they may want to ask before the appointment. Write them down as you think of them so you can be prepared when you meet with your healthcare professional. You can use the list below to help you get started, or download a complete discussion guide. It might seem like a lot to take in, but remember, you’re getting closer to living the cured years.

1. Select your guide. 2. Personalize your information. 3. Print and send it to yourself. 4. Bring it to your next appointment
