Who is this course for?
WHO needs to HAVE your information and WHO needs to HEAR IT?
WHO needs to HAVE this tool
If you or a loved one has a medical history with issues such as COPD, asthma, pneumonias, heart disease, heart failure, diabetes, kidney disease, cancer, or anything requiring specialized care, you are a HIGH RISK patient. YOU NEED THIS CARD!
WHY is the card important
A Health Information card will share information regarding your DIAGNOSIS, MEDICATIONS, TREATMENTS and SPECIAL NEEDS that we would not know just by blindly looking at you. THIS HELPS PREVENT ERRORS AND DELAYS IN TREATMENT... Even if you can't tell us the information yourself.
WHO needs to HEAR your information
Especially providers who DON'T KNOW YOU - Emergency Responders, Emergency department, hospital physicians and consultants. Consider providers who would need to care for you when you are too sick to tell us your story or unable to tell us anything at all.
