What patients can do...

 

 

  1. Remember you have the right to be respected as a person and not viewed as a medical case.

  2. Prepare for your appointments, for example plan your questions in advance.

  3. Be honest when discussing your day to day experiences of lung cancer.

  4. Ask questions about what you need to know - there are no stupid questions about cancer.

  5. Ask for further clarification if you do not understand.

  6. Ask for advice on what to do if you are unsure about something.

  7. Challenge professionals if you want to question something they have told you.

  8. Offer support to professionals where you can, for example write to the hospital if there are resource issues to address.
