Mennonite Community Services (MCS) is the social arm of several Anabaptist churches in the Aylmer and surrounding area. The mission of MCS is to provide leadership and empowerment by promoting integration and inclusion of our diverse communities, and serving the broader community in partnership with local agencies, businesses, and churches in response to the needs of all.
Health care appointments can be stressful for any patient. Research shows that patients forget 50% of the information shared during an appointment. Contributing factors include stress; too much information provided too quickly, unfamiliar medical jargon and the patient’s self-confidence level.
MCS, in partnership with the SW Self Management Program, is excited to present the “Getting the most out of your healthcare appointment” workshop. This 1 – 1.5 hour, interactive workshop, focuses on what to do before, during and after an appointment and uses action planning to optimize people’s health. This workshop prepares and empowers individuals to communicate more effectively with their health care provider.
If you are interested in attending the workshop, please call MCS at (519) 765-3020. Please pass the news about this workshop along to anyone whom you think would benefit from it!
