“ I don’t always understand my doctor’s explanations. Should I mention this? ”
Your doctor is under an obligation to give you clear, comprehensible information, and must seek to do so. The aim is to enable you to make an informed decision on whether to pursue a treatment or to act on a medical recommendation. Your doctor must give you up-to-date information, commensurate with your needs. These may vary from one consultation to the next.
Please tell your doctor if speaking French is challenging for you. The doctor will allow more time and may suggest you use an interpreter if necessary (see the practicalities).
