Learn about talking with your doctor and other health care providers

Richmond Public Library is pleased to offer Talking with your Doctor and other Health Care Providers, an interactive workshop to support older adults in becoming active participants in their health care and improving communication with health care providers.

The 90 minute program takes place on January 29, 2013 at 1:30 p.m. in the 2nd Floor Program Room at the Brighouse (Main) Branch, located at 7700 Minoru Gate, Richmond. The program is free but space is limited and registration is required.

“Unfortunately, for a variety of reasons, some people have difficulty communicating with their doctor and other health care providers. Evidence shows that patients who take a more active role in their health care are more satisfied with the care they receive, pursue treatment more actively and get better faster”, says Justin Harder of Patient Voices Network.

“The library is committed to Health Literacy and this partnership with the Patient Voices Network and Division of Health Care Communication at UBC is one of the many programs we offer to provide quality information about a wide range of health topics to the Richmond community,” says Lee Anne Smith, Programming Librarian.

For more information, or to register, visit any branch of Richmond Public Library, go to www.yourlibrary.ca/whatson.cfm or call 604-231-6413.
