Standard

Click here to download a printable version of the information from this page.

What is a 3-Sentence Summary?

An easy way to discuss important health information with your health-care team at each visit

How do I use it?

  • Sentence 1: My age, diagnosis and brief medical history
  • Sentence 2: My treatment plan
  • Sentence 3: My question/concern to talk about during this visit

Example

"Hi, my name is Sally Smith.

  1. I am 16 and have asthma. I have been hospitalized twice, but not in the last 5 years.
  2. I have been taking Ventolin and Flovent since I was 3.
  3. I am here today because I can't run anymore. I wheeze too much and can't breath".

Now it's your turn

  • Practice with the health -care providers you see the most
  • Ask if your 3-Sentence Summary is correct and includes all the important information
