The "How To' Health Guide

The “How To” Health Guide was developed by the Health Charities Coalition of Canada to assist patients, caregivers, friends and families in managing information about the Canadian health care system, which can often be challenging to navigate. If you, or someone you love and care for, are trying to find health services, support or information for an illness or disease, there are actions you can take to help get the best possible health care.

 

 

The Guide provides basic information about how to speak to those working within the system on a range of issues, including how to:

  • Understand the health care system
  • Find the information and services you need
  • Review and Evaluate the information you find
  • Talk with your doctor or health care provider
  • Ask for a second opinion
  • Manage your condition
  • Pay for your medication
  • Participate in a clinical trial
  • Advocate and ask for the support you need
