What Is Consumer Health

Consumer health information is any information that you need to make informed decisions about your own or your family's health. Access to this information helps you to work with health care professionals to make choices that are right for you.

For help on learning how to get involved in your healthcare and more about patient rights see the S.A.F.E. Toolkit created by the Manitoba Institute for Patient Safety.

To learn what kind of information services are available to you offered by Winnipeg Public Library and the University of Manitoba Consumer Health Information Service, see Library Services.
