My Health Plan

One of the best ways to promote patient safety is to be involved. How can you play an active role in your own healthcare? It requires you to keep your own healthcare plan. Many people may be involved in your healthcare plan – your doctor, nurse, pharmacist, chiropractor, fitness instructor, counsellor and many more.

A health plan is a record of your past, current and future healthcare information and goals. You can include anything you want to include in the plan. Here are templates and resources for you to create your health plan:

Family History

Surgeries and Hospital Admissions

Illnesses and Injuries

Emotional and Mental Health

Health Habits

Referrals and Consultations

Appointment Log
