The My Health Needs Checklist is a booklet that helps you keep track of your physical health and wellbeing. Our physical health is an important part of our overall wellness. We can use the Checklist to review our health and highlight the things that we would like to talk about to our Doctors.
The list has 32 items, including some suggestions about common questions people might have. There is also space for you to make notes or write down your own questions.
There is also a section to write down what you want to talk to the doctor about and to record what the doctor said. This is important because it is easy to forget things or to get off the track when you are visiting a doctor. You could even show your Checklist to the doctor.
Just in case you need some advice after hours, the checklist has the number for HealthDirect Australia, a 24-hour telephone health advice line staffed by Registered Nurses to provide health advice: 1800 022 222.
