Taking Care of MY Health Care has been a much anticipated consumer tool.

The tool was developed by the NTOCC Tools and Resources Work Group.

It has been through numerous reviews with the group, by social workers, and a literacy review. The NTOCC Advisory Task Force approved it on September 16, 2008 at their meeting in Washington DC.

This tool was developed as a guide for patients and their caregivers to use so they can be better prepared when they see a health care professional on what kind of information and questions they need to ask.

NTOCC’s goal was to keep it simple; as a guide, to open the lines of communication and at the minimum to provide them with a convenient, simple format to have an updated list of their medication and what the next step in their care would be.
