- Talk to your Host Nation physician to get up-to-date information on your medical condition and treatment plan.
- Answer questions about treatment, environment of care, and follow-up care to the best of their knowledge, or when doctors are unavailable.
- Assess and interpret patient concerns to determine specific assistance needs.
- Conduct follow-up visits to assess treatment progress and/or plans for the patient’s transfer to other hospitals or Military Treatment Facilities.
- Assist with the discharge of a patient from a Host Nation hospital.
