If you are coming in for an appointment, we encourage you to write down your questions so you can ask your physician and care team at the time of your appointment.
If you are in hospital, we encourage you to speak to any member of your care team. You can also speak to a Social Worker. Any member of your health-care team can assist you in contacting the appropriate Social Worker. You may also call Social Work Services yourself at 519-663-3131.
As a patient, you may be required to make several decisions regarding your care. While your doctor can help you understand what treatment plan is best, other times the answer will depend on what is important to you and what your values are. If you find yourself struggling with a difficult ethical decision, or wondering what is the right thing to do in a complex patient care situation, a Clinical Ethics Consultant is available at 519-685-8500 pager 19578 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
