Duty of Care
I’ve been recommended by my practitioner to do X,Y,Z thing. What do you think? What would you recommend?
A: The thing is I’m not the practitioner at this point treating you. If I was, I would be able to tell you exactly what it is that you need to know, what it is that I think, what it is that it’s going to make a difference in your particular case.
At this point, I cannot make specific recommendations – as opposed to general – as I do not have the information needed. Remember as a health service professional I have a duty of care, and in order to uphold that duty of care I need information about you, like your medical/health/fertility history, information that is specific to you.
For this reason exactly, we have the free Fertility Discovery Questionnaire which provides our fertility consultants with a minimum amount of information needed to up hold our duty of care when making specific recommendation about your health and fertility.
Essentially you need to be comfortable enough with your practitioner that you can discuss your history and thoughts. This is important because if you’re not that comfortable, if you’re not really that sure, maybe you have to look elsewhere. To learn more about who we are and what we do I recommend joining the next free 7 Day Fertility Challenge.
