Patients' unvoiced agendas in consultations

Patients' unvoiced agendas in consultations:
"Patients have many needs and when these are not voiced they can not be addressed. This suggests that when patients and their needs are more fully articulated in the consultation better health care may be effected. Steps should be taken in both daily clinical practice and research to encourage the voicing of patients' agendas. "
But just like good doctors encourage patients to ask questions, you should also remember that your doctor cannot read your mind - speak up !
