As we age, we all face more health conditions and treatments. To ensure they are getting good health care, it’s important for older adults to communicate effectively with their doctors and healthcare professionals.  Help older adults make the most of their doctor’s appointments and communicate effectively with their healthcare providers with NIA’s Talking With Your Doctor Presentation Toolkit. Along with handouts, a slide presentation, and other speaker materials, this easy-to-use presentation, suitable for small or large community groups, features a new 20-minute video that explains everything older adults need to know to prepare for a visit and discuss issues with their doctor.
