Managing Your Quality of Life: Making the Most of Your Doctors’ Appointments

  [ 266 votes ]   [ Discuss This Article ]
By Editor • www.ProHealth.com • February 21, 2007


A video/slide presentation on “Making the Most of Your Doctors’ Appointments” by Lucinda Bateman, MD, is available in DVD-rom video format for viewing online here [Note: The video requires you to have a computer, and runs on Windows Media Player - which you can download there if you don’t have it installed. The video does not play on TV.]

This lecture by Dr. Bateman, director of The Fatigue Consultation Clinic in Salt Lake City, was recorded at the 2007 International Association of CFS conference in Florida. It is an excellent primer that outlines step-by-step how Dr. Bateman helps her own FM and CFS patients get the most benefit from their office visits. Even experienced patients may find themselves taking notes.

Dr. Bateman explains that in most states only a few physicians will have a good understanding of FM and CFS – and these few may be so busy that they’re not easily accessible. Which means there’s an added burden on patients “to make the system work better for you,” and in a sense to train your own primary care providers (PCPs), until the number of educated providers can be increased.

Dr. Bateman starts by outlining the qualities to look for in a PCP. Then she outlines how you can organize and offer information in a concise, specific way to help your PCP focus on addressing your most important needs as efficiently as possible. She offers tools to help you become a knowledgeable, disciplined, and responsible partner in your care.
