The very purpose of the checklist is to help you and your treatment team pay attention to your needs for support and treatment. Simply put: your rehabilitation needs! You can fill in the checklist prior to contact with the healthcare centre, health insurance authority or prior to preparation of your travel itinerary. It might be a good idea to revise this checklist from time to time in order to identify new needs and cross out handled ones.

Your checklist

The most important thing is that you get answers to the questions that are of importance to you when you get in contact with, for example, healthcare centre or health insurance authority. Remember that this is YOUR cancer journey and YOUR life – there are no stupid questions!
Your checklist is, on one hand, a form that will help you prepare what you feel you need answers on. But, perhaps, above all, it is a form you can have as support for informing your healthcare centre and other contacts about what you think they need to know about you.
