Tips for Communicating With the Treatment Team
As a caregiver, good communication with other members of the Treatment Team is essential. The Treatment Team may include doctors, nurses, social workers, case managers, psychologists, therapists, and peer counselors — in addition to caregiver and patient.
Together, the Treatment Team functions in many ways to support the recovery process. Healthcare professionals on the team can also support your caregiving efforts by:
- Discussing any concerns or questions you have about treatment
- Offering advice or resources for managing schizophrenia
- Providing reminders about upcoming appointments
