Who Decides My Treatment?

Your physicians will give you information and advice about treatment. You have the right to choose. You can say "Yes" to treatments you want. You can say "No" to any treatment you don't want.

How Do I Know What I Want?

Your Physician must tell you about your medical condition and about what different treatments can do for you. Many treatments have "side effects". Your Physician must offer you information about serious problems that medical treatment is likely to cause you.

Often, more than one treatment might help you - and people have different ideas about which is best. Your Physician can tell you which treatments are available to you, but your Physician can't choose for you. That choice depends on what is important to you.
