Abbing, Henriette D C Roscam
European journal of health law 2010 Mar; 17(1): 11-22
This article deals with the impact on patients' rights of medical and technological advances in a market oriented (European) society: what are the advantages and risks, what are the challenges that lay ahead of us? After introducing the subject matter, the first part deals with risks for patients' rights in the European cross border context (health care, direct to the public screening offers and biomedical research). The second part sketches some of the implications of innovation in health care and medical technology for patients' rights to autonomy and private life, particularly when third party interests are involved. The article ends with some suggestions on how best to protect patients' rights in the perspective of innovation in health care and medical research.
