Module 3—Working with Your Health Care Team

Your health care team looks to you to see how CKD and its treatment make you feel—and for follow-through on what they suggest.

Some teams achieve great things—and others lack focus. You need to do your part, so your health care team can help you to do better. They depend on you as much as you depend on them.

In this module, we'll take a closer look at each of the key people who make up your health care team. Each one has a unique role.

Why should you care about who is on your health care team? Because when you know what each team member does, and what each one needs from you, you'll be better able to make sure that you get the quality care you need to feel your best.

By the end of this module, you will have a Personal Plan that you can print out to remind you of the key points you've covered. Let's get started. And, since you are the team leader, let's begin with you.
