Do you wonder where to go for after-hours medical support?
Is Dr Google the best option for medical information?
How do you get cheaper services?
This information session will be facilitated by the Health Care Consumers’ Association in a participatory style.
Topics to be covered include:
- 24 hour nurse phone support for any issue
- cheaper options for physiotherapy, occupational therapy or other allied health
- pharmacists – more than just medicines
- how to talk to your health professional so they hear you
- plus time for carers’ questions!
Carers will be invited to share their experiences with others to increase understanding and awareness on what is available in the ACT.
