Make the most of your doctor's visit

Make the most of your doctor’s visit

Your haemophilia care team is there to support you. Most of the time this means supplying medication, and providing check-ups – but their support is not limited to this.

Your haemophilia care team can also help to make your hopes and dreams a reality through providing advice and personalised treatment options. They can support you in going for that job you’ve been dreaming about, joining that sports team you’ve wanted to join since you were a kid, or even make that three months back packing trip happen.  It is important to discuss your ambitions, and have an open and ongoing conversation with them regarding your treatment.

(non-medical) Things to discuss with your doctor

 

For you to make the most of the possibilities in your life, you can start exploring your options and possible barriers with the support of your healthcare team around you.  Here are some conversational ideas to get you started:

  • A goal you want to achieve: Do you have a dream?  Something you're working towards, or want to work towards? This could be anything from applying for a job to climbing a mountain. Talk about your goals with your Haemophilia Care Team. They can help with the practical side of things so you can focus on the more exciting part.
  • Something you are worried about: Maybe you are having trouble even having ambitions because there is something in the way. Talk to your doctor if you are worried about is that you feel is blocking your path – they will be able to help  overcome barriers.
  • Your 5 year plan: Discuss with them where you see yourself in five years from now. Think in terms of your work, study, travel, relationships, sport or anything else that you find relevant. Together with their help, you can create a strategy to help get you where you are going.
  • Ask for options: Maybe you don’t want to climb a mountain or backpack around Asia – but that does not mean you shouldn’t evaluate your options in terms of treatment. Who knows, maybe there is an option out there for you that could make your day to day life easier or give you more time to do the things you love at home.
