Introduction

CARE is a tool to prepare you to talk to your doctors and loved ones about what matters to you, your worries, and your health. CARE will guide you through a series of questions and stories about people with illness. Your answers will be given to you and shared with your doctors in hospital so that you can plan for your care together. You can also use this information to talk to people in your life about what is important to you. Your answers are confidential, as is all your medical information.
