The Diagnosis Decoder helps you generate specific questions for your doctor, nurse or other health provider — questions designed to get you the complete information you deserve. Because no one knows more about you — and what you want — than you.

The concept was created by Compassion & Choices, the nation’s oldest, largest and most active nonprofit organization committed to improving care and expanding choice at the end of life.
