Patient Discussion Tool 

As a patient, it is important for you to feel empowered to make healthcare decisions, understand the benefits and risks associated with medical procedures and feel comfortable about receiving healthcare, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic (also known as Coronavirus). The Patient Discussion Tool was developed as a guide by patients, patient advocates and scientific experts to help you ask relevant questions regarding your care during the pandemic.

The questions in the Patient Discussion Tool serve as a guide when speaking to your doctor or other health care providers about considering a medical procedure during the COVID-19 pandemic. The questions provided in the Patient Discussion Tool should not replace the informed consent process with your healthcare provider but should help you ask questions specifically related to COVID-19.
