The information appointment

The physician informs the patient about the disease and about treatment alternatives during the appointment. This medical appointment is followed by an interview with a paramedical professional (nurse or technician). Its aim is to:

-     describe   how patient care will be organized: presentation of the service, the teams, information on administrative formalities, etc.
-     supplement and explain medical information, and answer any questions about examinations and treatment.

During the information appointment, the patient is given a contact folder. It includes information about the disease and how it is managed:

-    practical information: contact details of the people who will be responsible for your care;
-     the results of examinations and medical reports;
-    a personalized care plan.
