The program includes some great features that allows flexible learning and will support you every step of the way in your conversations with your Health Care Provider.
We use a wide range of media to suit many learning styles, including videos, audio downloads, checklists and templates.
We understand that many of you have laboured before, so you can focus on the areas that are more important to you.
The program is designed to help you work with your Health Care Provider, so we anticipate that you will use some of the downloads (printed or just on your phone) to discuss with them during your appointments.
