This tool has been developed in collaboration with healthcare professionals to help you create a personalized discussion guide that will help you make the most out of your appointment and, ultimately, find a treatment plan which works for you.

When you complete the tool, your personalized discussion guide will be generated for you to download, which will feature additional tips to help you before, during and after your appointment.
