When an intervention is recommended…

February 8th, 2010 § 0 comments

If an intervention is offered, or recommended, you should always ask:
What could happen if I don’t do this? How likely is it that that will actually happen?

If it’s a test, ask:
What difference is there if I don’t do this test? How will you care for me differently if I allow this test, vs. if I don’t allow this test? Will the results of this test change the outcome?

Don’t assume that everything offered is necessary. Ask questions, and then decide. =)
